Opening the Floor to Suggestions

Now that Daughter's birthday is over (and she made out like a bandit, thank you), it's time to start preparing for Son's birthday party, which is two weeks away.

I would like to keep the little brats blessings out of the house as much as possible (provided the weather cooperates), and another mom has graciously offered up anything she can to achieve that goal.

I had thought, though, of having a scavenger hunt. Then I realized that this would mean a dozen kids tramping all over our 22 semi-wooded acres. See, we have deer that roam the property. Deer = ticks. One can't take chances.

So that idea has seemingly been nixed.

Don't worry, I already plan on locking the younglings' bedroom doors. I found out, too late, that Son invited a juvenile thief to the party. The other mother I mentioned has readily volunteered to keep an eye on the little bastard tyke for Husband and me.

Now I turn it over to you. Got any suggestions as to how to keep a dozen kids outside??? Aside from the glaringly obvious one: don't have anymore birthday parties at my house!

No, I can hardly keep my kids busy for an afternoon. I wouldn't be much help at all!
