How to Celebrate your Child’s First Birthday when you live in a different state from family and friends?

One of the cons of living away from family and friends is not being able to share special moments with them.

We decided on Lake Take because we wanted Lucas to experience his first time in the snow. (Spoiler alert- He hated the snow, but he enjoyed staying inside running around eating smores. The car drive was about 3-4 hours away. Lucas slept most of it.
