Halloween week is always busy at our house. Not only do we have the trick or treating, the trunk or treating, the school carnivals and pumpkin carving we have a couple of birthdays. Dad's is the 28th and Josh's is the 1st. It is always up to mom to be creative with a birthday party around Halloween. Last year the boys got to do pumkin smashing contests. Since we hadn't carved them and the ground was soft they tended to go goosh more than splat....
This year dad wasn't sure what he wanted. He had mentioned earlier in the week that French Toast sounded good. We enjoy breakfast anytime of the day so I made a special birthday dinner for dad; French Toast, boysenberry syrup, bacon, O.J. and milk. The boys loved it.
Then came Josh's. He asked to have a swim party at the pool. Works for me! They have a deal that included swim passes, pizza and pop. We just brought the kids and smiles. They had a great time swimming for a couple of hours.
In the end, I think both birthday boys enjoyed their days.
Happy Birthday Guys!
