I'm 24 now... here's how my birthdays went:
I was born in Portsmouth, VA but only lived there for 1.5 years. I moved to Virginia Beach, VA and was raised there until I was 10.
Age 0-5, I don't remember my birthday parties at those ages.
Age 6, my birthday was at home. It took place in the front yard on a picnic table. My aunt, uncle, mom, dad, grandma, 2 of my sisters, and 3 of my cousins were there. I wanted a heart shaped ice cream cake for my birthday and actually got one!
*In June, between ages 6-8, a 4th cousin of mine was born.
Age 7, my birthday was at home. This time, it took place in the kitchen. Only my mom, dad, grandma, and 2 of my sisters were there. I got a surprise party and remember getting these pretty nail polishes that peeled right off after they dried on- kids' nail polish!
Age 8, my birthday was at a park, called Princess Anne Park, in Virginia Beach, VA. I got a birthday cake with piano keys drawn on it with a gel decor. The frosting was a whipped cream type- the best tasting cake ever! I also got a couple of Barbie dolls and lots of Barbie clothes. My mom, dad, aunt, uncle, many of their friends and their kids, 2 of my sisters, 3 of my cousins, and grandma were there. This was my biggest birthday party ever. At the end of the party, we all went to a beach (can't remember which one), but we were there for only 20 minutes... to watch the sun set.
