We decided a couple years back that we would celebrate Nathaniel's half birthday since he was born on Christmas eve. That was supposed to be in June but August seemed to work just fine. A family camp-out in the backyard, burgers, caeser salad, fruit and cupcakes (his menu choice). We ended the evening with a campfire and s'mores. You know your kid is getting older when he gets and i-pod, camera and video games and loves it.
