Why not?

We've certainly had a HEAVY couple of weeks of crime, accidents, death and sadness... so today - I'm going to BLOG about something GOOD. :)

(We need it around here... don't you think?)

There ARE good things happening in the Treasure Valley.

This week, I got an email from Faye Boyd of Nampa. Her daughter got into a car accident recently - while she was rushing around getting ready for her son Jacob's birthday party. The accident ruined the birthday cake she had in the back of her car! Fortunately she was okay. She was actually more upset about the cake being destroyed, than she was about the accident.

Well, when Nampa Firefighters arrived on the scene, they saw how upset she was about this cake... and they decided to do something pretty special. They showed up at her house just in time for Jacob's birthday party WITH a NEW birthday cake!

Here's a picture of them:

Nampa Fire Dept to the rescue!

Not only did they bring Jacob a new cake, they passed out fire hats and stickers to the kids - AND they let the kids take pictures in the fire truck. How awesome is that???

It was a day Jacob (and his mom) will never forget! A big thank you to the firefighters in Nampa at Station 2 ... what a wonderful thing to do.

Do you have GOOD news to share with me? If so, e-mail me at I'd love to hear from you and see your pictures!

Who knows, I may just BLOG about you. :)
