Palmer's first non-party year turned out to be so much more fun (in my opinion) than any party year. Palmer got to spread out the fun and spend a day planning the activities that HE wanted to do to make his day special. He started his birthday celebrating as early as three weeks prior with a trip to a magic show with Grampi.
At school on the birthday weekend, he celebrated with birthday donuts and a delivered power ranger balloon (which Palmer told me his teacher only had to threaten to take away one time. Not bad.)
The next morning, our sweet neighbor helped set up Palmer's present from Aunt Samantha, a zip line for the backyard (Rick was out of town for the installation endeavor!) Flying high thru the trees was such a fun way to cap the big birthday weekend.
Happy Birthday, Palmer! Let's do it again next year!
