Fire Trucks

Jackson's preschool class got to visit the fire station

He was a little nervous about sitting in the driver's seat

Jackson and his best buddy, Hugo
Several weeks after the fire station visit we had a real fire truck visit our apartment... at midnight... when the apartment directly above us had an actual fire. It was quite the night. Waking up at midnight to the smoke detectors going off, thinking "I can't believe they're doing the drill at midnight" because we recieved a letter saying there would be a fire drill this week and it could be any time of day, smelling the smoke and realizing it wasn't a drill, and grabbing both boys in their pajamas and running outside. It was quite the evening. Luckily, no one was hurt and none of the smoke or fire damage came into our apartment.
