I am driving myself crazy over my sons 2 yr birthday party. My husband and I both have large families. Last year, I made him a huge birthday party at my mother in law's house with all the works, moonwalk, carousel, clown, face painter, pinata, cupcake tower, cake, professional portraits, DJ, etc. We spent a fortune! We invited all of our family and friends. Unfortunately, my son got very sick that morning and slept throughout most of his birthday. Its so true you live and learn! So this year I wanted to have his bday at a pizza place or kiddie place. But most places do not accommodate more than 20 ppl. And the minimum rate is about $500-$600 for 2hrs only! So my point is instead of making another big birthday celebration for my son's 2 yr birthday, I am thinking of just taking him to Sea World for his birthday! What do you think? Do you think its worth it to spend so much money on your 2 yr old bday and have 100 guests just to please your family. Or should I just take my son somewhere he will enjoy? I know some of my family members will be upset. Thanks for your advice!
