Yesterday afternoon we celebrated (early) our big four year-old boy, Sam the Fireman! It was a beautiful, sunny, 72-degree day in the park. It was a nice, mellow party with a great group of friends.
First up, the decor & snacks: everything was red & blue, spicy, or flame-colored. We had some great balloons, red tulips, & little wooden firetrucks. Food included spicy cinnamon bears and hot tamales, chips and fire-roasted salsa, fruit skewers & veggie cups in flame colors. The party favors were dalmatian notebooks with colored pencils.
Sam & the kiddos thoroughly enjoyed the fruit skewers:

|The whole crew!|
|Firefighter Sam & buddies|
After an awesome tour with some super nice firefighters and lots of information, we headed back to the park for cake! (Because it was 4:30, I made mini cupcakes for the kids so they'd hopefully all still eat dinner). Sam's request: chocolate cake!
By the end of the party, we had one tired but satisfied Sam!
Happy Birthday to my favorite 4 year-old big boy! We love you buddy!
