This year my daughter will be 10! It's not until August. Summer birthdays are wonderful and horrible all at the same time. I know, I have one. You never get to have cupcakes at school,most of your school friends are off on vacation and the weather is less than desirable. SO... we had a Harry Potter themed 9 3/4 birthday party and painted the Hogwarts Express at a studio here in town. Since the train is accessed through Platform 9 3/4 we felt it was an appropriate time to celebrate being ALMOST 10!
