 you take the kids out for their birthday dinners and they automatically add gratuity to your bill,lol...This year we decided in addition to the kids gifts we would take the family out to the resturant of the Birthday kids choice...we have realized this may have not been the best financial decision considering we have had a child with a b-day for the past 3 months and do any of you know how expensive it is to take out 5 children & 2 adults to a nice resturant add in the 18% gratuity that they automatically add for parties over 7 and whew it's been about $300 a pop each time....but the memories have been priceless so its completely worth it,I just need to have a couple of glasses of wine before the server brings the ticket out next time!

 Yeah I know! We gave them the choice, and as a after thought we probably should have put some limitations,,,so far it has been Hooters, Lafiesta(which was cheaper) and yesterday my son chose a Hibachi Steakhouse and we had 2 extra people with us. Lets just say 3 growing teenage boys can put a hurting on some appetizers, chicken wings and steak! On a good note we have a couple months b4 the next birthdays so we can save up some money for the next ones,lol..The tips alone were like $26,craziness!!!But the servers definitely deserved it!
