My niece turns 6 on 8/10. I asked my SIL today if there were any plans yet, as our weekends have been pretty filled this summer. She tells me that she's taking her DD and 9 other girls to get mani/pedis and their hair done at the beauty school near us, then they're taking 3 of those little girls to a waterpark hotel overnight.
Since that's going to be so expensive, she's not going to throw a family get together, but actually asked if we'd like to host it instead. "just something small like a BBQ or something with our family and Chris's family." Her DH's family has 14 people. There's nothing small about that when added to our 8. I didn't get into specifics, but I'm assuming that since she said that they didn't have the money for it that we would be providing the food and what not. I feel bad saying no and feel like I just need some sort of alternate suggestions before my DH hears about this and flies off the handle. Thankfully this was all over text, so I can use the "I had meetings all day" excuse as to why it's taken me so long to respond...
