The Fire Department!

Here's the tour group minus myself and Aunt Mare...so cute :)
Love his look with the fire hat :)

On cloud 9!
This past week we had the opportunity to go to the Fire Station in a neighboring city where my cousin Brett is the Fire Chief. We had SUCH a great time! Emma was so scared and shy that she clung to Kelsey the entire time. We went with my Aunt Mare and her granddaugter Madison, who was not shy like Emma.
Madison and Calvin sat in all of the fire trucks, ran the lights, toured the ambulance, and then got to watch Brett slide down the pole. Afterwards he took us to meet firedog Maggie, showed us where he sleeps, trains people, and the kitchen and all of the nooks and crannies. So much fun!
Cal now has made everything a hose. Brett gave him a new firehat, so we are wearing that everywhere too. I think we have a new hero :)
When we were done we went back to my Aunt Mare's for lunch...she had packed the kids their own lunches in individual lunchboxes. It was raining that day so she set a tent up in her living room...such a good idea! They had such a wonderful time!
