Back when I was growing up, spending a lot of money on birthday parties was not the norm. Birthdays were typically a family time at home or if it was a milestone birthday, we might even have been able to invite a limited number of friends and play some games in the yard.
Boy has that changed! I am constantly amazed at the amount of money that gets spent on birthday parties these days even when it is for a baby turning 1 who will never remember any of it. It seems that having a party at a kid’s venue with all their friends is now the norm but that is good for those in Agritourism!
