A Visit to the Firehouse

One of the things that I wanted to do while we were visiting south for Christmas was to take the girls to see Uncle Jimmy at work.  The girls got a fire truck for their birthday and I tell them all the time that Uncle Jimmy is a firefighter and we works on the big red truck.  Luckily Uncle Jimmy was working today and he tried his hardest to arrange the calls so that he would be there.  As soon as we arrived he got a call and had to get on the ladder truck.  The girls got to see him gear up and get on the truck.

So we were waiting in the car and Uncle Jimmy's chief came out to the car and told us we could hang out in the firehouse.  It was really nice to talk to him and to see the girls play around the fire house.  About 15 minutes later the ladder truck pulled back into the house and we got to see uncle jimmy.

Uncle Jimmy hoped into the back to see if the girls would go back their with him...that was a no-go.
We did get them to go up front and "drive" the truck.  Emma was much more willing than Lily, but she did warm up to it.

emma did not like the hat!

lily kinda liked the hat
cute picture of mommy and lily
The front of the truck had a wreath on it and I thought it would make really cute pictures.

It was a great visit with Uncle Jimmy.  Maybe next time the girls will want to go into the truck.  Thanks Uncle Jimmy for a great time.
