Maybe they thought they were done at 2 and gave away or tossed their other items? I can see things like if they used a convertible crib for each of the other kids.
250 people? That strikes me as someone made a huge oops and sent out the message to too many people. There's no way anyone can afford that at an average BBQ. I don't even think any of our parks could handle that at an indoor shelter or even an outdoor shelter with the exception of one building and that's about 1000 to 2000 dollars to rent. I'm guessing too many people have said they're going and the parents can't afford it.
