Evan had a fantastic 5th birthday party. We started at the Billerica Fire Station and learned a lot from the Fire Fighters including all the kids spraying the hose, getting to go in the Fire Trucks and rescue boat, seeing the jaws of life in action, seeing the ladder go up and a fire fighter climb it, and seeing a fire fighter in full gear to teach the kids to not be afraid. Everyone - kids and adults had a great time. Right as we were wrapping up they got a call and we saw the Fire Truck speed away in front of us.
The ladder fully extended!

We then had people back to the house for fun in the bounce house, outdoor games, and food. Here we are at cake time! Mommy made a Fire Truck and Fire Station cake and flame cupcakes.
