|My favorite shot of the day: Giving his brother an explanation|
All I can say is: It was a good idea to go to a place that had plenty of firefighters, since one of my kids climbed too high there -- and had to be rescued. (true story)
That's not really all I can say. In fact, I could say quite a bit more. Like -- the men at the Mint Hill Fire Dept are really great with kids! They had 50 of them today, ranging in age from 2 to 12, and they spent a whole bunch of time with us, showing the kids just about anything they could think of.
Gee-Gee and Grandpa are in town today, so Gee-Gee and I took the 3 younger kids to the fire station, and we all learned a lot. First they showed us how they put on their equipment.
|I think this guy was wondering why exactly he had invited 20 kids to come stomp on his boots.|
We learned all about the different trucks, got a tour of the house, and heard about how things work.
Now, of course, I have a couple boys who think it might be really great to grow up to be a firefighter...
Good field trip on this chilly day!
