Isaac was crushed because he had been pretending to be a firefighter for weeks and he really wanted to have a costume, too. My Mom bought him one for Christmas, but we gave it to him early so he would be able to wear it to the party.
Since John had asked for a fireman theme for his birthday, we had the party at the local fire station. The firemen gave us a tour of the facility and showed us their trucks, equipment, and all. I thought other people had gone there to celebrate their birthdays before, but the fire chief said that in 22 years this was a first for him, which made me wonder if I am a little strange. I think the kids really loved it. I'm sure they will be pretending to be firemen for months now. Below are pictures from the party.
