I have a love/hate relationship with birthday party planning. I love doing the planning, but then at midnight the night before I start to regret some of my grand plans. However, despite being up really late again last night frosting cupcakes, putting labels on water bottles, and making fire truck-shaped peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, I am really happy with how everything turned out.
The kids all had a great time touring the station, and they even got to hear the siren go off a few times and see the trucks leave for an emergency.
And thank goodness my husband has a steady hand, because there is no way I would have been able to frost all of those cupcakes by myself, especially after making 24 fire truck-shaped sandwiches at midnight last night.
