The Firehouse

Andrew was invited by a friend from church to check out the firehouse. It was a day full of ... "is it time to go yet?" from a little boy who anxiously awaited a phone call letting us know the trucks were back from fire drills. We arrived just before dark and were met by our friend 'fireman Jim'.
First Andrew and his dad got to ride in the truck around the corner with lights flashing and siren sounding. Then we were able to see where the fireman live, sleep, eat, and hang out. We met the Hazmat driver, and the helicopter pilot, and the fire chief.

Andrew tried on all the fireman gear, and was ready to fight fires.

He got to wash the driveway with the hose

And talk to the fireman on the radio

His sister waited supporting her brother in the cold night air. And when the firemen asked Andrew if he wanted to be a fireman when he grew up.....
Kristen replied with a resounding "I DO" All in all it was a great day for a little boy with big dreams.
