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.
