Fire Station 10

Last week we joined some friends on a visit to the fire station. The fire fighters were so kind and friendly with all the kids, and let them climb all over the engine, try on hats, even spray the hose! (Spraying the hose was obviously the highlight!) 
With the boys current obsession with superheroes, it was fun to talk about some real heroes, and learn about what they do. It was especially cool to go on September 11th, and remember all that our fire fighters do all over the country to protect and help us. The boys were very impressed with the fire fighters and ask to go back to the fire station almost daily. 

 These three kiddos! It's so cute to see them together. They are the best of friends. Grey and Micah ask to be with Elanor every morning as soon as they wake up. I don't know what we'll do when we don't all live in the same house!

I don't know how it is everywhere, but for Salt Lake, I just called the Firestation's non-emergency number and asked when we could come visit with a group of kids. The person helping me was not super enthusiastic- but when we got to the actual station, the fire fighters were wonderful. They repeated many, many times that we were welcome to come back often and anytime we want. The Captain told us that they really want the kids in the community to recognize and trust them, and any chance they got to encourage that image was welcome.
We loved our visit to the station and will probably go back soon!

What a fun thing to do! Elanor with that big axe is a little scarey!
