A Fire Fighter Fifth Birthday Party!
A very close friend is throwing a Fireman Themed Party for her soon to be Five year old daughter (so technically I suppose it is a Fire Girl party?). Anyway, I LOVE party prep and would be happy to dive in and help, but the party is the same weekend as Joshua's baptism.

Zet je sirene aan, mijn brandweerfeest komt er aan!
Met zijn 4 jaar Nand mocht voor de eerste keer een verjaardagsfeestje geven voor de kindjes van zijn klas. Ik vroeg hem wat voor een feest hij graag wou. Het antwoord was er snel, een brandweerfeest. Voor de uitnodiging werden twee van zijn passies gecombineerd: de brandweer en Lego. Zijn Gele brandweermannetjes, waren fotomodel van dienst.
