Landry turned 4 years old on January 3rd, so we had a big birthday party for him. He loves fire trucks so we decided to go with a fireman theme. Of course we decorated with lots of streamers & balloons in addition to turning the house into “Fire Station #4.”
After we ate a few sandwiches, chips & fruit, we started the “Junior Firefighter Training.” We even had a real Fireman there…Landry’s Uncle Dan. First the kiddos had to lie down & pretend to be sleeping. When the emergency siren went off, they had to jump up, put on their fireman coats & hats and feed the firehouse dog (Vader the “dalmation”) before leaving the Fire Station. Then they all went outside to the “fire.” They busted down the “wall” with the “axe” & then climbed the ladder to rescue the “baby” from the building. Then they ran over to the other buildings on “fire” and all sprayed their “hoses” (silly string) to put out the “fire.” Once the training was successfully completed, each child received a “Junior Firefighter” badge.
We then came inside to eat Landry’s fire truck cake. We all had a great day & will remember this birthday for a long time!!
