While I was busy prepping for the big party, my parents and Clint took the kids to the LECPTA Safety Day (when I saw the announcement to this, I knew Charlie's birthday was destined to be his perfect day :).
Charlie's most exciting part of Safety Day, both this year and last, was the helicopter. Apparently he somehow forced his way to the front of very long line and ended up piloting the helicopter with Colin.
He also loved the Game Warden boat...
...the police motorcycle (another big hit)...
...and the police car.
They somehow convinced Evie to try it out. Future policewoman?
The kids then played a bit at the park...
Very Serious Policeman.
Evie and Papa.
The grand finale? Watching the helicopter fly away, of course!
What a fun start to such a special day! We are lucky to have such energetic grandparents. :)
