Fireman for a day...

As a parent, it is a wonderous thing to watch your child experience something for the first time. Today, we made a visit to the Buena Vista fire department. Noah is fascinated with fire trucks and since they were having a barbecue luncheon fundraiser at the fire department, we thought we would join the festivities and let Noah explore the station. It is truly a neat fire station in that they have many of the old, classic fire trucks that were used years ago. Noah was mesmorized by how big they were. He was especially excited when one of the firemen came over with his helmet and let Noah try it on. It was so funny...they are really heavy and Noah had a difficult time holding his head up because of the weight of the helmet. He was a little scared to actually climb in the trucks so we didn't force it.

What a neat experience for him and so fun for Jody and me to watch his excitement as he very carefully examined every inch of the fire trucks. He was a happy boy to be there and who knows, maybe he'll be a fireman some day.
