Preparing For a Fire Truck Birthday Party

May... here we come!

May brings a ton of birthdays in our family, but the one most important to me is our son Benjamin. He will be turning 3 in May. Where did the past three years go?

I feel like it was yesterday he was born and now he is so… big!

When it came to deciding on a birthday party theme this year there was no question in my mind. Many people in this house are obsessed with fire trucks, especially him. Thanks, of course, to my husband, the fireman.

If we head out to dinner for the night, Ben wants to go to the fire house and play on the fire trucks before we go home.

He can name every fire truck they have in the department.

He knows the sound of the sirens and makes them as he pretends to drive the trucks. It is actually pretty priceless, and even the other firemen in town who don’t know our children have commented on their impressive knowledge of the downtown fire trucks.

I asked him a couple weeks ago what kind of a birthday he wanted, and while I suggested some of our favorite Disney movies, he said “FIRE TRUCKS!” so it was really a done deal from the start.

He wants… I will deliver.

There are so many awesome and adorable fire truck-themed birthday party products, shirts, and paper goods, especially on Etsy. These are some of the favorites I found in my search. I hope that anyone else who is planning a fire truck birthday party for their kids enjoys this!
