My daughter will be 13 in a few weeks and I am not sure about her party this year. She has changed dramatically (emphasis on the drama) this year and I don't want to plan a kiddy party, but also don't want to be too serious about it all. She wants to have a barbeque on our property as my son did on his 16th birthday a few weeks ago, but she also wants to still have a pinata. I appreciate any input on this. Any ideas for how to proceed? Do we still play games? Give out prizes?... Seems this year that no matter what I do I am embarrassing and very Un Cool so I don't want to embarrass her at her birthday.
Ugh! I am lost.

Thanks for the responses.. I think she does want to invite some boys from school and we could just have them picked up before the sleep over portion begins of course.. She has little to add after the bbq and pinata. I tell her that if she doesn't help me she can't complain how it turns out (that won't stop her) so really I am lost. MomRocks1000 it's great about the nails.. I wish I had a similar talent, but not even close. Ugh! We can't even ride the quads as her friend broke her shoulder doing that the last time she was out so we no longer allow it because the mom is deciding whether or not to sue us even though we had her verbal (means nothing) permission over the phone. They can't hike up the mountain in the desert at night like my son and his friends did because they are just not old enough.. it's not safe. (this makes her grrrr at me)..
