Someone I love very much is turning five this weekend, which not only a) blows my mind and b) makes me happy, but also makes me think back on some of the birthday parties I had and went to growing up.

I remember the one where we all had to dress up in the colours of Smarties and the cake was covered with Smarties (which, for all you who live in the US of A, are these chocolate delights, not these, which are *actually* called Rockets. [I'm just saying].)

And I remember another where I was wearing a dress that was super long and got caught on the stool I was sitting on, tipping me right over. (Whoops!)

Or the time I went to a birthday party and was told that relish (which I'd never tried before) was cut up frogs. (Didn't try relish for years after that.)

I don't really remember what we did at these parties, I just remembered it was fun to dress up, eat cake, and spend time with your friends. Oh, and the presents were nice too.

What's your favourite growing up birthday party memory?

For me, it's definitely the fancy puffy dresses I got to wear! :D
Ooh, and the game pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey played afterwards! So much fun! :)

Sweet, Dilling. Sweet.

D, I totally remember pin the tail on the donkey! (with blindfolds for added danger!) :)
