Party pics

Here are a few pics from Scott's party the other day....

When the kids first got here they all played downstairs until Steve arrived with the pizza (about 10 minutes). Then it was pizza for lunch, then the activities began (all pictured below) and finally, some presents and the firetruck cake (shown in an earlier post). It was a fun party, and the 2 hours just flew on by!

Stick the dog on the Firetruck!

Fireman Relay... Here you see, "STOP, DROP and ROLL!!!"

After the kids did Stop, drop and roll, there was a mad dash to get into the Fireman clothes... and a race to go around the buckets at the end of the driveway.



Next we had a piƱata and all the kids got to try a few times hitting it... but it finally took them pulling on the strings at the bottom to open the trap door in it to release all the candy.

Jackpot!!!

Yes, these are water balloons... what would a fireman party be without water?

The kids lining up for "Soak the Fireman" game... Steve always wanted to be a fireman, and on this day, he got to be one! The kids thanked him for it, and they all (including Steve!!) had so much fun.

These were all supposed to be outdoor games, but because of the rain they got played inside the garage. And for Soak the Fireman, the kids stood under cover inside the garage and Steve stood out in the rain... which didn't really matter because he was getting pummelled by water balloons anyway!!!

And finally it was cake time. Then the party was over and the kids all went home. Next my parents came for dinner and spent the weekend with us. What a fun-filled, wonderful weekend we had at our house!

No, she didn't get to do it at the party because of how the numbers for the teams worked out... but she hasn't asked about it again, so I haven't done it with her yet! Steve said we should have put that fire escape ladder out the boys' windows and done a relay with the kids going out there in a practice drill... I said, "can you imagine how much trouble we would be in?! And that would be a pretty quick way to get an actual firetruck to our house!!!!" fyi - we didn't do that!!!!

That was awesome how all that "fire" stuff worked out. Did you borrow the suits too?

Sarah said...

No, the "suits" are made up of my red jacket and Steve's jacket, and both of our hiking boots, and then the firemen hats from the dollar store!
