Lexi is 4!

Last Saturday we had a birthday party for our big 4-year-old! She wanted to go with a Toy Story theme... wow! There are a lot of great ideas online right now for a Toy Story party. She had 10 friends/family members come and every child made a Buzz Lightyear rocket ship and a blue or green "egg" alien. We then moved downstairs and had a potato head contest (to see who could build the best-looking potato head) and then finished with pin-the-tail-on-Bullseye! Of course we had to have cupcakes and ice cream after the kids were done playing. All the kids had a great time and Lexi opened some great gifts. Thanks to everyone who came and we'll see what theme she comes up with for next year.

Fire Station!

Today Lexi didn't have school. Instead, her whole preschool took a field trip to the Bath Fire Station. First, Fireman George told us all about the station and how many trucks and ambulances they have. They get called out on average 4 times every single day! After the short talk, we moved on the the garage to see the EMS vehicle. He opened up the back and showed all the kids the equiptment that was inside to help the first responders take care of injured people. He also showed them some of the tools they use to help them get to people in a burning building. Then we moved on to the bright, shiny, red fire engine that was parked outside. The firemen even rolled out the water hose and helped the kids (one-by-one) spray the water out! Then some kids even got to pull the string and sound the horn on the fire truck! Lexi chose not to do that. To top off our trip, each child received a red fireman's hat to take home with them and got to wear the hats in the group picture taken with Sparky the dog. All in all it was a great little field trip - and even Jill (who got to tag along) enjoyed herself. Thanks to fireman George and his crew for all you do!

Preschool Pictures!

Ah, my child... our first Preschool picture will definitely be a memorable one - notice the tissue in hand! Don't know what I am gonna do with my emotional child. Anybody want to take her in when she enters her teen years??!! Just kidding! At least she wasn't crying in the group shot.
