My son's birthday is coming up soon. We have had his party at home for the past 3 years and he is wanting to have a "REAL" party this year. Anybody have any suggestions? Need something reasonable, but for a lot of kids. I have 8 neices and nephews without counting his friends. TIA

Happy Birthday!!!

For reaching another milestone in life I would like to offer a special gift to you before you get another year older, pound heavier, or another wrinkle more prune-ish.

My gift to you this September is a FREE abbreviated portrait session and 4 wallet sized portraits of your favorite individual pose.

You may bring someone with you to hold your hand and be in a few poses but the complementary 4 portraits are reserved for the birthday guy or girl. Additional portraits will be priced at one half off the usual family portrait price list.

The portrait session must be made within 7 days before or after your birthday and take place at the Dallas Studio.

We are not open in Dallas every day, so an appointment needs to be made by calling 770-443-7355

I won't post your portrait on P.com without your permission but I m sure the results will be so great you will beg me to post your image here to share with all.

Call today—

This offer is for anyone, young or old.

Happy Birthday once again.

at that age, my siblings always wanted to have their friends over with some music and/or movies. they had the living room to them selves (or so they thought smile.gif always a watchful eye) with whatever food they wanted (chips and dip, fruit tray, sodas, popcorn...) for the girls, we would still put up streamer and balloons, the boys didn't like that.

or he could invite all of his friends to stars and strikes or something like that.

I would rent one of those Sumo Wrestler inflatable things, order a bunch of $5 Pizza Mias from Pizza Hut or throw some hot dogs on the grill, get soda, chips and cake and let everyone have a great time at home.

How is at home not a " real " party ? huh.gif We do ours at home every year for every kid. We have a blast and all family members come over. We do cook outs, pinyata's .. sometimes water parties in the summer. You can have a real party anywhere .. why does it have to cost money in order to be " real "? Growing up my parents were very poor .. lucky if they got anything at all. I think I would rather spend money on gifts for kids and have a cheap, real party at home.
Moved on to a more positive and enriching environment =)

Anywhere with a pavilion and a large playground. Maybe a basketball court and tennis courts too. That way, all ages can have something to do.

Also, start looking at limiting who is invited. He is to the age where he wants it to be more friends and less family. I had small family get togethers for birthdays, then a party for the friends. Or a party for all and a few friends for a slumber party afterward.

Find out what he means by a 'real' party, because to me, that would indicate an at home party. Otherwise, it is a kid's party to me (thinking Mickey D's or Chuck E Cheese type thing).
