Future Fire Chief...


On Saturday we took Isaiah to go meet the heroes who work down the street from our house. We had been planning to take him on a tour of a nearby fire station for his birthday and it turned out that this was the best time to do it (a couple of weeks early). 

You would have thought we took him to Disneyland.

The firemen and the captain all loved Isaiah's look of awe and wonder as he toured the station and explored fire trucks (a pumper and a ladder truck). We had fun visiting with the firemen, getting a glimpse into their daily life, and thanking them for being willing to put their life on the line several times a day every single day for the safety of others. 

Isaiah got to sit in the trucks, honk the horn and activate the sirens, and play with the hoses and nozzles.  Part way through the tour he looked up at us with a huge smile and said, "This is so cool!" Seeing him enjoy it brought so much joy to us. 

We completed the family date with lunch at Firehouse subs (where Isaiah looked more in uniform than the rest of the staff) and we spent the rest of the weekend talking about how much fun we had.
