"Forget not that the earth
delights to feel your bare feet and
the winds long to play with your hair."

Birthday and Fire Station Visit

Here's Ben eating his Birthday whoopi pie.  He was very excited!  We aren't especially huge fans of cake, well the frosting on cakes, in our house and we opt for whoopi pies instead.  My husband and I had them for our wedding cake and our son has inherited our love for  them.  We are especially fond of Steve's Snacks Whoopi Pies out of Skowhegan, Maine, so if you're ever up there or see them in the store, you better get yourself one- they are very yummy!


For my son's birthday party this year we decided to listen to what our little three year old wanted instead of making it some big to-do where everyone is invited, I'm pulling my hair out, my too-small house is filled to capacity, and in the end it wasn't all that memorable or exciting of a birthday party.  So, this three year old knew what he wanted:  his "boys" to come over to his house and to go to the fire station.  I could do that!  And so we did......
Our little fireman ready to go!

He was mesmerized by the firemen, the trucks, and waiting anxiously for his turn in the driver's seat.

Ben and his "boys"!


That is one happy little boy!
