It's Kevin, Kate and Randall's tenth birthday. Unlike the joint parties their parents usually throw them complete with children's games like pin the tail on the donkey, Kevin and Kate request separate preteen bordering on teenaged themed parties, with which Randall goes along. This request, which their parents oblige, marks what Jack in particular sees as a turning point in their lives as a family.
