Who doesn't love cupcakes!

What if there was a picture of the guest of honor on every one? How cool is that!

I really got a laugh when I saw these cupcake wrappers.

These make a homemade gift even a little more special.

Cheap day trips

Cheap day trips are a super-duper fun way to celebrate a birthday. For example: Have you ever heard of Geocashing? If not, it's fun to how to geocache.

I hadn't heard about it until a year ago. It's an outdoors treasure hunting game. You use your GPS to find small hidden containers. There's lots of information on the web about this great and very inexpensive activity.

My nephew lives near Lake Tahoe. He and his wife go Geocashing all the time. They are getting quite a name for themselves for discovering hard to find treasures! Tops my list for homemade gift ideas for boys!

It's so relaxing and scenic!

The great thing about the train is that you don't have to hassle with traffic.

Plus, you see parts of the country that you miss by car.

We're lucky enough to have an Amtrak station in our town. I've enjoyed some great train rides to Los Angeles, Reno Nevada, the San Francisco Bay area, and our State Capitol in Sacramento, CA.

Check out for their weekly specials and latest promotions. If there's a special event in a city near you (a concert or circus etc.), often times you can get a discounted train pass and event ticket together on
