A visit to the fire station

My girls love fire trucks, especially sweet Rowynn. I've always wanted to take the kids but never really looked into it. So about a month ago I did a little research and learned that you could take tours of local fire stations for free. So I asked our friends the Sraders if they would be interested and booked a tour for last Saturday.

If you are local, you must take your kids! We had a lovely time. The firemen gave a brief presentation on safety and answered our questions. They were very friendly and patient and super nice. They then took us on a tour of the station and let the kids try on the gear and climb in the truck. At the end they passed out stickers, pencils, coloring books, and plastic fire hats. This was a completely free activity (we did bring cookies for the firemen) and the kids loved it. How cool!?!

We are about to do a community helpers lesson so this was a fun way to kick that off.
