Fire Station Field Trip

November 14th Eli's class got to go on a field trip to one of the local fire stations. His teacher arranged the whole trip because Eli has been talking about being a fireman for the past two months and her father retired from being a fireman a few years ago. Thankfully Al and I were both off of work so we were able to join the class downtown and witness all of the firetruck madness. Eli had a blast and wanted to do everything at the firestation. The guys were amazing and let the kids get into anything and everything they could get their hands on. Miss Catie (Eli's teacher) had her father meet us there since it was his old station and we could not have asked for a better experience. The guys got out the big truck with the giant ladder. The kids got to slide down the poll, spray the fire hoses, get in the trucks, and try on real gear. It was such a FUN morning. The fire chief said we could come back anytime we wanted for an hour or two and let the boys play again.

Looks like everyone had a FUN time. My middle son, Brayden, preschool class is going to our local FD in two weeks. :o)

HI there, what a great idea. My husband has a friend who is a fire fighter and for James's birthday we took himto the station where he worked James was a little aprehensive though I think he was to young to understand. Thanks for visiting our blog. I wondered if you had any recommendations for tube site care. James keeps getting granulation and it is still so sore for him just thought I would ask who better from a mom and bonus a NICU Nurse. thanks in advance. Tracy
