Firemen in the making

Today we ventured into Burbank to attend the annual Fire Service Day. We went to a pancake breakfast which was very yummy then went and saw all the fire trucks, and police cars (and motorcycles) We, of course, forgot our camera but we took some pics with our cell phones so excuse the quality of some of them. But we had tons of fun and the boys got to listen to the Alley Cats, a singing group that sang Kevin's favorite song The Lion Sleeps Tonight. and we went to the farmer's market they had there and got some yummy peaches and corn on the cob for dinner. It was such a fun day and so nice to be out and about again now that the boys are all back to normal.
the first thing we did was that Kevin did the obstacle course where he got to hook the hose up to the fire hydrant, then spray out the fire, climb a little roof and hammer on it, then he picked up a hose carried to a designated area then raveled a hose back up...here are a couple pics from that adventure....oh wait I almost forgot then he was interviewed by the Burbank Leader about what the best part was...we will have to see if he makes the newspaper at 3 and a half.

We spent the rest of the morning testing out the vehicles to see if we liked them. WE DID!!!

That picture on the motorcycle is super rad and your boys look like they're having a great time! I hope Kevin makes it in the paper -that would be an awesome one for the scrapbook!

It was fun to run into your guys for a minute while we were there. Actually, it was probably good timing on our part, since we reunited you with your husband. Of course, I'm sure you would have found each other eventually! Cute pictures!

I love when they do open houses like that. I know the boys just love playing with all the cool equipment. Man those kids are getting big!
