Best Birthdays is about REAL parties for REAL parents. Everything here is easy to accomplish, even with limited time and energy.
Best Birthdays is also Calgary's premier source for information about kid's parties in YYC. Check out my complete list of party venues in Calgary, here!
My name is Katie. I'm a librarian and nerd, and a mom. I work for a non-profit in Calgary and write for a few different publications. I also read a lot of SF and speculative fiction, so I'm totally prepared in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
I also write short book reviews full of foul language over at Brass Knuckle Book Reviews.
