Van's Birthday Party
For Van's birthday this year I wanted to keep it simple and cost-effective (after nearly breaking the bank last year). I sent out a Paperless Post inviting a few of his friends and cousins to tour the fire station with us.Captain Bush's team did a tremendous job. They were great with the kids and very engaging. After we toured the station they took us outside to play with the water. The kids loved having a chance to spray the hose.Souvenirs were provided by the department. Each kid went home with a pencil, eraser, coloring book, and temporary tattoo. I made box lunches for all in attendance and we spent the rest of the time swimming at our pool.
