Okay, this actually starts with a lie because my best birthday ever was seven years ago when I hired a game truck with big screens for video games and laser tag and turbo Nerf guns and then invited my nieces and nephews and my son's friend and the neighborhood kids to all come and hang out at my parents house for the afternoon. It was a blast. Well, that and the THREE different pies that we made. Lemon meringue, coconut cream, and pecan. Yum. This year we decided to forgo that fun and drive the 728 miles from Whiting, Maine to Hershey, Pennsylvania. Oddly that was one of the best birthdays ever. Of course the key lime pie my son bought for me the next day was a pretty good present too.
