Welcome to Fire Station #3!
Here’s Engine #3! Our daughter in law created another fabulous cake.
Stop, Drop and Roll!
All the usual suspects and more were in the station enjoying each other before lunch was fired up on the barbecue.
The spotlight this day was on Fireman Jaymison.
Some people came dressed to the T with flames on!
We had our lunch of brats, hot dogs, coleslaw, potato salad and other goodies. We cleaned up after lunch and then we were all surprised to hear the fire alarm go off. The fire chief and fireman pulled on their boots and headed outside to see what the alarm was all about. Sure enough there was a fire that needed to be put out!
The Fire Chief supervised as Fireman #3 helped to put out the fire!
Fireman JJ was relieved of duty while the Fire Chief took over and was helped by other guests at the party.
JJ kept an eye on the action from a safe distance.
The fire was put out successfully.
All those from Fire District #3 posed for their photo.
After all that hard work it was time to light the candles and sing Happy Birthday!
Two fires put out in one day!
We had two other April birthdays to celebrate with a candle on this day. Our Andrew and Jamie D. had a dessert made in their honor.
Time for presents!
Fun with his very own Pop up Fire Rescue truck. Room for JJ and his friend David.

Brother and sister.
This 3 year old was a real trooper through all those photos and all the action of the day. His birthday this year landed on the Saturday between Good Friday and Easter. Not every birthday will land on Easter weekend, thankfully.
Baba and Gramps love you JJ and we are thankful that you are growing strong and healthy. It’s fun to watch you build things with blocks and Construx. Bikes, your jeep, swings, sticks and rocks along with dirt keep you occupied outside. You love being outside and thanks to your mom and dad you are allowed to spend lots of time in the fresh air. Thank you for your cuddles and hugs. You are our favorite 3 year old in all the world!
