Almost ready for prime time...
And will you LOOK at this CAKE!
I loved it.
We tried to come up with clever snack names...ahem.
We put the ride on toys along the driveway again this year, which was again a hit.
Then, the firetruck came down the street! Sirens blaring!
We are everyone's favorite neighbor after this, I'm sure.
We were so glad to have Nana and Cora visiting for the party as well!
Even the big kids had fun...
Then we gathered indoors for a talk on fire safety!
And then it was time to spray the firehose!
Everyone took a turn - and I'd show you every turn, except for that aforementioned collage thing...
Once again, even the big kids liked this.
Then it was time to take a ride...
You can barely see the kiddo's heads - S said they giggled the whole way.
Oh, and, to please the neighbors more, he ran that siren again. Whee!
Everyone took a trip around the neighborhood, too.
At the end of the firetruck time, I asked all the kids to stand on top for a photo.
Everyone complied except my boy - back there covering his eyes. Nice.
And a family photo.
Then somewhere in here we did a couple of games.
Where you moved water around.
He blew that candle right out!
Then - presents. He received lots of nice things.
Including this ridiculous present from his parents.
Which he seems to really enjoy.
We had no intention of getting him one of those types of vehicles, but when we asked him what he wanted for his birthday, a "race car" he could "ride in" was the only thing he ever responded with. And, well, we are suckers, so there you have it.
It was a good day.
See you soon.
