We attended our first fire department banquet the other night.  I wasn't sure what to expect but it was a lot of fun.  The highlight of the night, of course, was Dave winning two awards.  

The first was for Most Active in Company Training.  

Then, much to both our surprise, Dave was given the Chief's Award for his help and assistance with firematic duties.  

The best part, though, came when the boys got home to see Daddy's awards.

Nate was so excited and in complete awe of Daddy's achievements.

He was so proud of his father and I loved seeing the gleam in his eye.

Of course within minutes, (as fully expected!) Nate asked if he could put these prized possessions on the collection shelf in his room.  

So Daddy obliged.  

As I left the room, I heard Nate whisper "I'm so proud of you, Daddy" as he kissed the plaque on the wall.  *sigh*  So precious.

I have a strong feeling he's going to be following in his daddy's footsteps! :) And yes, our "hards" are very much alike. It IS difficult sometimes, isn't it?
