We had a great time this past weekend at Big Brother’s 3rd birthday party! We felt so blessed to have so many family and friends there to join the celebrate for our little man. Big Brother began sharing with his Grandma about 6 months ago, that he wanted a firetruck for this birthday. I was predicting that the fire truck infatuation would pass away before his birthday, but it actually grew over the months.
Here are a few pictures to tell the story of Big Brother’s special day. I will begin sharing a few tutorials for the Fire Truck Birthday in the next few weeks; so be sure to check back for some party ideas that can be adapted to almost any birthday theme!

Little Man’s Uncle borrowed a friend’s fire fighting gear, and surprised the birthday boy by coming to the party dressed like a fireman! Our Little Man wasn’t sure who he was at first, but as soon as he removed his sunglasses he ran to hug him.
