You could do something like just have it at McDonalds and the kids can play in the playplace or just a small family party at home or the home of a relative that has a bigger house. I have had my daughters party early or later so the weather is better.

It's nice to have your son's birthday party somewhere where someone else is hosting the party. Typically, you don't have to worry about entertainment, decorations, cleanup, etc. Depending where you live... we had my son's 2nd birthday at "My Gym" (similiar to Gymboree). You could also have a birthday party at Chuckee Cheese, where they host it. I live in Santa Rosa and I know where my son plays soccer (Sports City), they also do birthday parties.

We did a mommy and me swim lesson with a Nemo theme. It was a great time. We gave everyone a Nemo swim ring or kick board for a parting gift.

Kidspark is a great place. I just had my son's 2 year party there. He had freinds that we 2 months old to 6 years old and everyone (the kids) had something to do. They have 2 activities of your choice, it's indoors in 1 room (so the parents can relax), inexpensive and they do all the work. It's worth checking out if you have one near you.

My daughter's birthday is in January and I know how hard it can be. Since he is only 2, you might want to do just a tiny party with only 2-3 kids. If that's not an option and having it at a bounce place, etc is too expensive, condsider opening up your garage. Move the cars and set up tables and decorate. Kids that age just want to play and don't really do organized games so have one table full of play dough, one table full of crayons and paper and one table full of snacks. We did that for a birthday party and let the kids play as they wanted and it worked great. Have fun!

My daughter is turning 2 in February and I am going to have her party at the Little Gym (similar to Gymboree). I won't have to worry about the clean up or the weather and they do a class for the kids the 1st hour. My daughter has about 15 friends under the age of 4, so I don't really want them all at my house anyway.
