DS is going to be 13 the end of this month, I can't believe my "baby" is so big already. (He's as tall as I am, wears a size 9 mens shoe, and can eat us out of house and home if we let him- what happened to the cute 7lb 6.9oz little guy I brought home from the hospital? Time flies!)

Anyhow, dh and I are wanting to have a huge party for him, and make it a really special day.

He is going to invite everyone he knows close to his age (or at least the list he has going looks like it! LOL) and we're doing a Fri. Evening party- the girls are going at 10pm, and the boys are staying the night, and camping out in tents in our yard (fairly safe area, and dh that hears EVERYTHING )

We plan on doing potato sack races (which reminds me, anyone have the measurements for a sack so I can sew them?), possibly 3-legged races, a piñata, and then maybe later on, hooking a strobe light on our patio, and letting them 'dance'.

We plan on this being like a 3hr ordeal, we're going to set up a 'buffet' table, and do cake and ice cream too.

Sooo, anyone have any ideas? We want this to be really special for ds.

We have as resources a good sized yard, a pool, and a great patio.

Thanks~ Jodi
