My first child was born in early October - some years its warm and some its not, my second was born in January and its always cold. Neither I nor anyone in my family has a place big enough to accommodate family and their friends for a birthday party, now that they're both in school they have a lot more friends who they want to invite for their birthdays and with a limited budget we can't really afford to rent a space or the birthday packages that are offered at the local movies, bowling places, restaurants, or play places. I have a decent sized yard and considered having an early b-day party during the summer so the kids can play outside and we can put the cake and everything out on picnic tables. The idea came from my cousin who has a son and daughter both born in December. DH thinks its a good idea, then on their actual birthdays we'd have a small party with just family.
For anyone who has also done this, or anyone with ideas, what should I put on the invitations to announce this very early birthday party?

If you child is okay with it I think it's fine, but I do think you should still honor their real birthday as well. We have some friends who have three kids and they have one big summer party for all of them together - none of the kids have summer birthdays. The kids were teens before they knew when their real birthdays were because they didn't celebrate or even get their day acknowledged. It's sad, really.
