Hi Wonderful Moms!

We're rounding up great ideas from moms for birthday celebrations for boys of all ages. How did you celebrate your son's 9th birthday? What was his favorite gift? If he hasn't had his 9th birthday yet, have you been to a great 9th birthday party for a boy? What did you find special about it?

Thanks for your responses!

Cheers,

when our son was about 5 or 6 he decided he wanted to go to nicer places, so we always ask him birthday party with lots of people or a special place with us and a party with my (my family, were closer to them and I have a big family and so does hubby so too many people:) since than he chooses to go somewhere usually a fun place or a very nice restaurant (one year it was a weekend at the great wolf lodge) and than a small just cake and pizza at grandmas with aunts uncles and cousins.. I love it..

gift is whatever he wants around that time.

My son is a super LEGO freak!! We baked a cake in the form of a large blue Lego then spelled his name out with Legos on the cake. Had friends from his track and gymnasatics' teams over in addition to a couple of more friends. Played games and had a slip-and-slide set up in the back yard. Had competition on the slip-and-slide too. All the kids had a great time. He had a friend spend the night after the party oh... And... he SCORED on the Legos for presents too so it was very fun.

I took my son to Catalina Island for the day.

There in the island we took 2 tours and had dinner and cake.

We went on the Catalina express and he loved it.

We just celebrated Isaiah's 9th birthday..we had a cook out at our house and had a wading pool to splash in and also a slip-n-slide..it was a "CARS" theme so we got him a monopoly game with the "CARS" characters ..he also got some kids mystery stories and i baked a cake and decorated it w/ some "CARS" characters...he also got a bike from my parents and 9 bucks from my aunt and ten bucks from my SIL..not sure what his fave present was..he was pretty excited about all of it : ) thats what we did for his 9th bday..but in the past we've done themes like "army" (my brothers were in the army at that time so he was fascinated with soldiers,etc) and i bought toy soldiers,tanks to decorated his cake and had balloons in the shape of granades..another theme was "the farm"..we all dressed "farm" style and he had farm animals on the cake i made..that year he was really into "thomas the train" so he got a train set.
