Our Firefighter turned Four!

Fireman Crosby’s 4th Birthday Party!

My husband made a fantastic cardboard fire truck with a ladder on one side, and a hose on the other side. The kids played in this all day (and for the next week).

Each kid was given a fire extinguisher and a fireman hat.

The play house was fitted with construction paper flames. The kids used the mini fire extinguishers (which we filled with water), they squirted the flames and saved the house from burning down!

There was a table with coloring pages of girl & boy firefighters, and a temporary tattoo station.

I used the flames as a backdrop for the table. We served 3 Alarm Chili, Rookie Mac-n-Cheese, Rescue (pin) Wheels, Fire Sticks, Smokey the Gummy Bears, Fire Poles, not pictured were the Fire (fruit) Sticks – pineapple and strawberries.

This was a BIG hit! We got scaredy cats from Amazon. When the siren alarmed, we told all the kids to line up, they needed to save the scared cats from the tree. My husband was on the other side handing them through as the kids climbed the step stool and saved their own cats. Everyone got to keep their cats, and they were all excited because they each saved their cat!

Finally time for the cake! We ordered a cake from Costco without any decoration, asking that they only write “Happy Birthday Fire Chief Crosby” but the cursive Fire Chief looked terrible and the writing was so small, so I removed it and decorated over it. Best mistake ever! It turned out far better than I could have imagined… just check out Crosby’s face the first time he saw it!

That was one truly happy kid!

Happy 4th Birthday Crosby! He’s growing so fast. These are the moments and the memories that will never leave us. My sweet boy is FOUR! He’s kind, playful, silly, smart, and pure joy. We love you Crosby, so much!
