Fire Station

Annedria, my sister-in-law found out the fire station by her house was hosting an event today and she invited us. Unfortunately Taylor had to work so it was just the kids and me. As the four of us were walking up the driveway to the fire station Peyton fell and scrapped her elbow and knee which was bleeding. My first thought was that we were at the right place! I walked up to the first fireman I saw and told him what happened and we got ushered in the back door. We got to sit next to the big fire trucks while they cleaned Peyton’s knee and gave her a Band-Aid. Then they took Ashton and Peyton to look inside the truck. The fire-woman turned on the lights of the fire truck too. It was kind of like we got VIP treatment. They were doing large group tours around the station and we got to go on our own. We met up with Annedria and her family and started our tour together. As we went more people joined in. We got to see where they slept, the famous “poll” and they even had a slide. They had a gourmet kitchen. Actually two kitchens. A large gym and a Day Room which was more like a media/conference room with nice recliners laid out in a theater style downward slope. After that we got to see the trucks. Sit inside, look at all the gear and tools. They were even going to let Ashton try on some, but he was being too shy.

I don't know who this boy is next to Peyton. He kept getting closer and closer to her. I think he wanted to be in the picture.

The Poll. They actually had two.

After the tour we sat down for breakfast. They had pancakes and fruit bowls and Chick Fil A also brought sandwiches. We all had a great time and I'm so glad we got to go!

How fun! I want to take our kids to the fire station, I think they do kid tours in October (it'll probably be raining here :)
