Square one, or thereabouts

Last year I made my children cry by telling them I didn't want a birthday party. Apparently that's not allowed.

So this year I knew I'd have to do something. I'll be 40 on Friday and Bob'll be way older than that a week later, and we had a plan; a picnic with the neighbors. Sadly, we have no grill or yard in which to implement such a plan, but Bob solved that one by reminding me about the park up the mountain, which would do nicely.

So that was all set and I invited my favorite neighbors, who have kids and everything, and there was going to be a party.

Only now it turns out they can't make it, so I ask of you:

How far away from the actual birthdays can we have the event and/or what other sort of celebration can we hold that will satisfy my children and not be too much work for us?

I say that Bob makes you a cake* ON your birthday, with candles and everything, and then you do the picnic thing with your nice neighbors sometime during your birthday MONTH.

And, by cake, I mean something vaguely cake-like. Michael got chocolate-topped rice krispie treats for his cake this year. It had candles. It counts.

We could always go visit Raxicoricofallapatorius.

I celebrated mine this past weekend 34 days past the day. . . . .

And it was the best birthday party I've ever had.
