Today we celebrated Matthew's fourth birthday with a party. He had several friends over to enjoy a water slide (graciously loaned by good friends), and a visit by the local fire department. Matthew was absolutely THRILLED when the truck pulled up and he realized that they were here for HIM!!! He tried out all the seats, got to blow the horn and siren, and also got to run through the "rain" created by the fire hose.
We had a great day (though it was very hot, even at 10 in the morning) enjoying our friends and each other!
