“Makin’ My Rounds All Over Town Puttin’ Out Old Flames”

Do you all know that George Strait song?  The Fireman?  Am I showing my country roots a little too much here?  Perhaps…

The fire station at the town adjacent to ours hosted an open house last Saturday.  The theme was “community helpers” last week at Wildman’s preschool so I thought that a trip to a real fire station would tie in nicely.  His class didn’t get to go on the field trip to the fire station.  Only the 4-year-olds got that experience.  How lame is that?  Anyway, it was a good thing that we had an open house so close to our home.

Wildman had so much fun (as I knew he would)!  All of the fire engines were open for the kids to crawl on, there was fire equipment to dress up in, there were free sno-cones, some of the firemen set up a hose for the kids to put out a pretend fire and lunch was provided too.   It was a great way to spend two hours of our Saturday.  Wildman even saw one of his preschool buddies there.  His friend’s dad is a fellow kiteboarder friend of J’s.  It’s a small world when you have preschoolers…
