My youngest son will turn four on the Fourth of July.

It’s his golden birthday.

We are traveling for a family wedding on the third and he will get to spend most of the day celebrating his birthday at Grandma and Grandpa’s on the fourth before we have to head home.

But, I am trying to figure out if there is something extra special that I can do since it’s his golden birthday.

Since you all are so good at giving me advice, what ideas do you have for a four year old’s birthday?

Now, on to flakes.
