Charlie turned 3 last week, and we had the best time celebrating him at the fire station for a fire truck birthday party! The weather was absolutely perfect (he's wearing shorts!), and we were able to spend the afternoon with wonderful friends and family.
The kids decorated their buckets (I found them at Party City, and my friend, Patty helped me with the vinyl monograms) with foam stickers, and colored their fire truck coloring pages. Then, the yummy part, ice cream with lots of toppings...(you can kinda see the ice cream bar in the second picture).
The fire fighters were called out just as we were ready to tour the fire truck. But before I could panic, our friend (and one of Charlie's friends' dad), offered to let the kids come see and sit inside his police car. So awesome! The firetrucks came back soon after, so not only did the kids get to see the truck back up in the garage, they got to sit and play inside one. Police cars and fire trucks in the same day?! I can't think of anything better.
Oh...and the last picture...I tried to get at least one pic with my little man, but he wasn't too happy that I took him away from his firetruck. :)
Such a fun afternoon celebrating! I hope you all had a great weekend as well.
You would think that as much as I love a good birthday party, I would try to learn how to not only use my camera, but also how to stage the party for beautiful pictures. One day...one day.
