O Captain! My Captain!

O Captain! my Captain! our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weathered every rack, the prize we sought is won;
Walt Whitman
 
 
After roughly ten years on the Fire Department
Paul was promoted to Captain.
I am so proud.
He deserves it.
He really does and was told so by several members.
 
 
 
This is the only picture he would allow me to post.
(Vanity, thy name is woman Paul)
Chief Al Dreher giving him his Captain stripes.


Athena was invited to the Firefighter Banquet.
Her first grown up function.


She was excited to go but later was quite disappointed
as she thought it was a "Ball" and that she was going to
be able to dance!

That last picture is my new fave of Athena. I'm liking her long hair!

Also, I want to see more pics of Dad getting his wings so email them to me.

Congrats, Paul!

Athena looks like a porcelain doll. What a sweetie.

Congratulations to Paul! What a proud moment. Athena looks so pretty, all dressed up.
