Matty's b-day is the 1st week of october. last year we had the party at my moms home. this year we were going to do it at our house but, our back yard is not up to par at the moment. we live in the san fernando valley and we are not looking to see how much we can spend. we thought of those gymboree type places, but there are not that many kids coming and we really do not want to serve pizza, serve more like brunch items...i would think 15 or less kids, maybe 40 or so people coming. mainly family going to be there. i thought of the ice cream store at the el capitan...i just wish there was an old school ice cream parlor (swensens or farrells close by...not the one in valencia.) if anyone has some fun ideas or stuff i can't think of that would be great....thanks.
