  • For my first some we made the cake ourself, not pay for one. He had his own little cake and then the big cake everyone else ate. My mom and I made BBQ chicken, because it was actually cheeper to make chicken that any other kind of meat. And we made scalloped potatoes. And green beans. Those were the main things. My son's bday was last August. There weren't a lot of other older kids there, so we didn't have games. Will you need games at a pool?? I would think they will just be swimming anyways.

  • you could maybe get one of those floating basketball nets...my son is 1 and he LOVES dropping balls into the hoop of his toy basketball goal....bubbles are also a lot of fun for kids that age. you can get a bubble machine at wal-mart for $10 that blows TONS of bubbles for the kids to chase after (it was my sons favorite 1st birthday present)
