We had a birthday party for The Little One's 8th birthday. The new thing was it was the first co-ed party we've had.
She has several good friends that are boys, especially B and C, who are also best friends, so I felt they would be fine with all the girls around.
Boys are a lot different from girls.
From the moment they both walked into the house, the energy changed. Lucky for us, the weather was good, and since the theme of the party was "carnival" we had everything in the backyard. We had a ring toss, junk food walk (like a cake walk, only the prizes are junk food), estimation jar, toilet toss (throwing wet sponges thru a toilet seat. The boys loved this one.) and rides on the rope swing.
The Little One had a great time so that's all that matters.
