Our little community had it's annual Firehouse Sale this weekend to support our all-volunteer fire station. The neighbors donated things to sell and made food for the bake sale. I took a truckload of stuff that somehow found itself taking up space in the house and barn....most likely purchased from last year's Firehouse sale! I was considering taking some dark chocolate truffles or some raspberry brownies, but I feared if I made them they wouldn't get out of the house.
At the fire truck, there was a competition among the kids to see who could put out the house fire the fastest.
Face painting and a fishing game to pull a toy out of the water were new this year and a huge hit with the girls.
Of course we loaded up on the baked goods before finishing off with some brats and baked beans (dessert always comes first, don't you know?!)
Now I need to go unpack the rig from all the 'new' stuff that we couldn't pass up!
