Happy 5th Birthday JD!

I'm a little late on posting about JD's fifth birthday...but he is fully five now! 

We celebrated JD's birthday on April 2 with a Firehouse party!  This is something I have always wanted to do, since obviously we have a few firefighters in our family.

We started the party out at the Central Allen Fire Station (where Jon works) for a tour.  Uncle Josh was helping out and Uncle Nathan gave the tour!  The kids loved it.

After the tour, we headed over to the original first fire station of Allen, which is now a recreation hall.

Jon did his cake magic again this year because JD requested a real fire truck for his cake.  He also designed a Maltese Cross cake (a firefighter symbol). 

We had lots of buddies from school and playgroup this year, in addition to cousins.  JD had a blast!! 

My main handiwork was homemade cake pops for party favors.  Not the easiest project in the world!  But super yummy and another request from the birthday boy!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little boy, who is not so little anymore!!
