We went to a movie (birthday child picking), out to eat (bday child chose), activity- anything from pro basketball game, concert etc.

Each of them get to chose a "dream" trip when they turn 16! This past year we spent a week Up North MI- hiking, waterfalls, beaches, scenic drives. This year we are going on a Disney Cruise and 2 days at Universal Studios. Next year we are going back to Disney for a Hawaii themed trip- Ohana, Discovery Cove, etc.

Otherwise, we keep them simple and just our little family! We all seem to like them better that way!
**wishing I was a daughter of Dawn to get a dream trip!! **

Oh wait, we still need to do our 40-year old trip that we said we were going to do for years. One of these years, right?!
