Birthday Bash!

Saturday was the day we finally celebrated Henry's birthday with a proper party. He was finally able to be around his friends outside for a great time. Everything came together so nicely. All but a couple of his friends could come, family joined us, the weather cooperated beautifully and the surprise that we'd hoped for arrived with some great timing - you'll have to see the pictures to see what we mean!

The theme was fire fighting and we had plenty of props and activities. We had "Fireman Training" - The kids had to rescue a stuffed animal from the fiery playset. - then they had to take it to the 'hospital' in an ambulance.

We had a very special cake to celebrate with! Make sure to take note of the driver!!

And a very fun visit from some local friends!

We so very grateful to the Longmeadow Fire Company and to Steve and his partner for showing the kids a great time with Truck #27!!

What a great birthday party, Henry! We are happy that you were able to have such a fun time with your friends. How many other kids get to have a fire engine at their party? You look great, sweetie. Keep it up!
