Help me give a great kids' birthday party

Who knows of any fantastic outdoor party games for a group of about 10 kids (and several grown kids) that don't need much in the way of expensive equipment?
My daughter will be seven this weekend, and we want to have a cookout in the park with a bunch of pals. There's a great picture in my mind's eye of a delightful picnic with tasty food, icy drinks and a cake... you know, checkered tablecloth etc. (There's also pictures of arguing children, burnt food, and it all being fun until somebody gets poked in the eye, but we all start out with the best intentions...)
So, I guess the question is pretty vague... What makes a great kids' birthday party? Know of any great outdoor games with little or no props?
I was thinking about a hunt of some sort, kids following a clue to another clue until they find a something-at-the-end-of-all-of-the-clues, but holy cow... we've got three hours to fill with fun & games.
oh yeah- and what goes in an awesome goodie bag?
