Fireman Party

T is already 3 and totally into firemen and firetrucks.  He will constantly begin his stories with, “When I was on my firetruck…”  So he got a fireman birthday party this year.  I called the local fire department and got a tour of the fire house and firetrucks.  We met at the fire house for the start of the party and then headed over to our house for dinner, games, and dessert.Titus' 3rd B-Day (79) Titus' 3rd B-Day (74) Titus' 3rd B-Day (69) Titus' 3rd B-Day (64)One of his favorite things about firemen is that they work with hoses so he was excited to hold the fire hose.Titus' 3rd B-Day (75)Another one of his favorite things about firemen is that they get to climb up ladders so he was excited to climb on the ladder to the firetruck too.Titus' 3rd B-Day (66)I gave the kids water balloons to throw through a flaming ring (hola hoop covered with shredded plastic table cloth).Titus' 3rd B-Day (58)The also got to extinguish foam flames with a squirt gun fire extinguisher.Titus' 3rd B-Day (57)And he had fun climbing the ladder to rescue the cat.Titus' 3rd B-Day (53)I found a fire hydrant sprinkler for the kids to play in too.Titus' 3rd B-Day (5) Titus' 3rd B-Day (2)I set out firetruck to play with.Titus' 3rd B-Day (49) Titus' 3rd B-Day (51)We roasted hot dogs and hand watermelon and corn on the cob too.  (I liked that the watermelon and corn matched the color theme I had going on.)Titus' 3rd B-Day (50) Titus' 3rd B-Day (46) Titus' 3rd B-Day (44) Titus' 3rd B-Day (42) Titus' 3rd B-Day (40)T got a new firetruck for a gift.Titus' 3rd B-Day (7)I made flaming cupcakes.  I made yellow cake batter with red swirls in it, then I frosted it with orange flames.  We also had a smores bar with 3 different kinds of chocolate, grahams, and marshmallows.Titus' 3rd B-Day (36) Titus' 3rd B-Day (28)And of course I had fire hoses (licorice) for T.Titus' 3rd B-Day (23)And fireman ladders to eat.  I melted chocolate and dipped pretzel rods in it and then pretzel sticks for the rungs of the ladder.Titus' 3rd B-Day (33)My sister-in-law, Cloninger Photography, did an awesome job with his photos again this year.Titus24 Titus08 Titus22
