Birthday “Experiences”

Ribbon and wrapping paper flying all through the air…piles of plastic, noisy toys forgotten in minutes…jealousy, selfishness, tears and fighting kids…ahh, birthdays. A cynical view, I know, but for a while now I have worked on going “beyond” the typical, consumer-driven, junk accumulating birthday present.

Now, with some effort and creativity, Mackenzie and I collaborate in discussing what we would rather do to celebrate a birthday. (She doesn’t have the greatest ideas yet, but they’ll come). For her friend Elizabeth’s seventh birthday, we decided to have a tea party at Tea and Teacups. What fun and hopefully, the memories of this afternoon will last a wee bit longer than the newest Barbie from Wal-mart. Well, the pictures will last at least!
