For mobile: Would you rather...? (A birthday party question)
Would you rather attend a birthday party for a three year old at:
A: a splash pad/ local playground
Environment: Public, so just a claimed area for party guest amongst others sharing the space. The space has a nice sized splash pad area with different sorts of fountains for kids to run around in. There are also two age divided playgrounds and a decent restroom with changing stalls. Shaded picnic tables but the water activities provided at the splash pad are kid only geared. (The benefits of this option are: less set up and clean up for me at 7 months pregnant, DD2 loves the area, it goes well with my ladybug picnic theme. The cons are: public area could be crowded, adults would probably be hot unless they were brazen enough to cool off with the kids, we would probably have to invite DHs extended family- I won't even touch on why this is a con and judge me if you want for it but it is a con in both of our eyes.)
B: a back yard
Environment: Private, in my moms medium sized, fenced back yard. We would have kiddy pools, a sprinkler and an inflatable water slide big enough for kids and parents to enjoy. There is a large screened in shaded porch and the yard is partially shaded. (The benefits of this option are: a limited guest list which would be less overwhelming for my shy DD2, adults could have fun too. The cons are: more set up and cleaning at 7 months pregnant as people have to go through the entire house to the restroom, there are a few people I would like to invite but would probably have to leave out)
over all which one would rather attend?
