The firehouse

Day 21.  We went to the firehouse with our playgroup.  We were given a tour of their living quarters, got to see their different rescue vehicles, and were given a demonstration on what a firefighter would look and sound like during an emergency.  Lorelei enjoyed climbing around in the firetruck, getting to "drive", and even held the firefighter's hand for a BRIEF second when he was all suited up.  I think it was a great outing. I hope that the girls will never have to encounter the firemen in a real emergency, but if they do I hope today's adventure will at least keep them from being too scared.  The fireman said that children will often run and hide from the guys in full suit.  Call your local department.  I know they would love to show you around, too.
