When I Grow Up I Want To be a Fireman...

Katie was excited to plan a back to school Fireman Party for Ransom ever since he decided he wants to be a Fireman. His EMT classes begin this week. We got a phone call just before dinner and Ransom sliced off part of his thumb so it was off to the Emergency room they went. We headed over to finish cooking at their place... Fajitas that were out of this world good, with homemade strawberry lemonade. Katie out did herself! Ransom still felt up to playing games... after all, it's just a thumb wound he said. The top left photo shows two thumbs wrapped up, but that would be Katie's practice wrap job she learned at the hospital as she will need to change the bandages. I have to admit, I am kinda liking the challenge of coming up with the games, however dorky they may be. It was a very fun party and ended with Ashlee's chocolate cake :)
1. Water Balloon Toss
2. Build a fire in a metal bucket and climb on the roof and throw water balloons and put it out
3. Hip waders, carry a hose and save an animal relay race
4. Fire Hose Unscramble

What a hoot...a fireman party. Loved the games and pictures. Great idea Katie. Hope Ransom's thumb is feeling better soon. Ransom, you are going to make a great fireman and EMT. Prayers and hugs to you all.
