Fire Department Field Trip

Do you love a kid who L-O-V-E-S fire trucks? ? I do! Matthew thinks they’re “beautiful,” so I asked the local Fire Department if we could stop by for a visit. I was delighted that the answer was “yes” and that we were able to invite some friends, too!

Our Fire Department Field Trip took place on Thursday, July 15th at 9 a.m. Each family brought something yummy to share with the FD staff as a thank you for their time and efforts.  The firemen were absolutely amazing with the kids, and I am so grateful for their time, patience, and enthusiasm. After the tour, we gathered at our house for some playtime.
