Firestation Tour

Yesterday Rylie tagged along with Jaiden & went to our local firestation for a tour. Our neighborhood has a "Mommy & Me" playdate group that scheduled this & we got word of it & thought it would be something fun to attend as well!
The firemen did a great job talking to the kids (various age groups)!
Jaiden volunteered to try out the stretcher!
Then all the kids got to look inside the ambulance. Rylie was not wanting anything to do with going in there! lol


Then they brought out the firetruck to show us!


Jaiden & Rylie looking very intrigued!


Then they got their picture taken on the front of the truck!



Then the kids sat & watched how a fireman gets on his gear




Rylie & Jaiden werent listening too much until..




The fireman put his mask & everything on!

Then they were very interested! lol


Group photo of most of the kids!

Then as we were leaving this fun "field trip" I heard the firetruck siren. I thought they were just playing it for the kids, but then I realized the firetruck was behind me & following me down my street going home. Sadly, our neighbors across the street lost their son yesterday due to a long illness. I wont go into details, but it's really sad & makes you appreciate your health. Please say a little prayer for their family today!
