Our playgroup made a trip to a local (but different than last time!) Fire Department. First we got to tour the whole building to see where the firemen live, but the kids were all about the trucks, of course.
The captain explained all about what they do, and the kids were surprisingly intent on what he had to say.
Then they had another fireman put on the full gear… air tank, mask and all. This was the point that Egan became a bit nervous. It was super smart for them to have him dress in all the gear so the kids could understand how it all works and that he isn't scary. We sincerely hope they never have to encounter a fireman in full gear, but if they do, they now know what to expect!
Our sweet crew… minus Egan (who didn't want to be pictured.)
Sloane made really good friends with the fireman on the right. Check out that smile!
Egan sure wasn't shy about checking out the fire truck. He didn't want to get out! We love trucks, fun and friends!
