It’s that time of year again! Fingers crossed that this year it doesn’t snow, as it did on Grace’s third birthday party (forcing us inside: twenty three-and-under children in our house – never again). The birthdays at BB&N are heavily clustered in the fall and Grace and I are spending every single weekend for the forseeable future attending at least one birthday party. Many of them are totally OTT. I’m pleased with the relatively low-key nature of an open tent on a working farm and donuts and coffee for refreshments. That’s the only downside to a 10am party – you really can’t serve alcohol in good conscience!
