Station 45

We got to take a tour of a local fire station today, as a sort of wrap-up for our playgroup for the year.  All six of the playgroup boys came, as well as their older and younger siblings, so the moms and firefighters had their hands full!  We had a great time!  
We got to see a lot more this year than we did last year.  The firemen walked the kids all the way around the truck and explained everything to them.  

McKay was a bit distracted by the HazMat truck.

One of the firemen put his turnout gear on so the boys could see what it looks like.  McKay started crying and said he looked scary.  I can see that.

And best of all, each kid got a turn to sit in the driver's seat of the fire engine!  

Did you know that a fire engine like this costs about a half million dollars?!  And the gear inside is another $200-$250K?  Yep, I asked that question.

Such a fun trip!!  Thanks to the firefighters of Station 45 for making this possible for us!
