It was two weeks after Lily’s actual 8th birthday, but we had her birthday party this weekend. After much discussion on what to do for her birthday party, we settled on Young Chef’s Academy nearby in Morganville, NJ. They run cooking classes geared to kids, and also birthday parties. We arranged it with them maybe two months ago. The kids would be making brownies and ice cream, measuring ingredients, cracking eggs, etc. The nice part is that they handled all the invitation cards, supplies, and goodies. That made party planning a lot easier. Show up and party happens. We were running around a bit on Saturday, but we made it right on time for Lily’s party.
Granted, we had some snow during the party (in April!), but the party went well.
