When I was growing up, we only had parties for our 6th birthday. I have no idea how my parents enforced that, because for months Chloe has been talking about and anticipating her birthday party. We had to make a countdown chain to convince her of how many days were really left until her birthday. She was very specific in wanting hats, balloons, blowers, a horse pinata, a cake with flowers, and everyone she ever met in attendance. We decided to have a water party in the backyard, and I think everyone had a great time. Thanks so much to Ashley especially, and all the other moms who pitched in to help things run smoothly.
