This is a pretty terrible picture of me, but at least all three kids are in it!
Mairead was leaning on Dave for part of the show and using the turtle's feet to keep the rhythm- it was very cute.
Right behind the library is a fire station. My grandfather also used to take me when he would stop by there to visit some friends. He was a firefighter for several years, and Dave's dad was a firefighter in NY. The boys seem to have a natural love of fire trucks, and we definitely understand why! Anyway, the firemen were outside washing the trucks so we stoppped to admire them. The men were kind enough to invite the kids to sit INSIDE THE FIRE TRUCK. Can you believe it? Inside a REAL fire truck!
I wish the pictures were better. It was really bright, I was standing between two fire trucks parked very close together, and the wind kept blowing the door shut, so conditions were not ideal. Still- the kids thought it was pretty great to sit up there! Ben did complain that the truck "No go?" No go?", but he'll have to wait a long time if he wants to really drive one.
The firefighters even brought hats, stickers, and coloring books for the kids. They were so kind, and we really appreciate their time!
Jack is not sleeping- it was just very bright!
