A Visit to the Firehouse

This past weekend our local firehouse had an open house and we took the grandkids to it. They had so much fun, Cameron is going to be a fireman for Halloween so he was very excited and even though these guys are still a little young to even understand what firemen do they loved the big firetrucks and equipment!

Everyone's checking out the big firetruck!!
Maddie had to explain to Cameron what's going on! :-)

They had the ladder all the way up with balloons on it. It was a beautiful Fall day here in Cincy!!

The kids were a little concerned about this dummy on the floor. Ha..........

And Cameron loved sitting on the big firetruck!!

Just one last photo of the fireman's boots sitting on the floor ready for them to put on. Okay, before I go today I have to tell you. I am meeting a fellow blogger tomorrow for the first time. Actually it's the first time I have met any blogger in real life and I am so excited to finally meet her in person. Can you guess who it is???? It's Kari from Just Livin Large!! I'm sure I'll have lots of photos to share! I'm pretty excited to finally get to meet her! I'm surprise any of you guys are still hanging with me since I've become a slacker----haha.........but some of you know that I've had a rough six months or so but am coming out the other side a stronger woman. Happy Thursday!!!

Ha Looks like the little ones had fun at the firehouse. I remember when my kids were 5 and 7, there was a open house at the fire house and they got to squirt the hose! They were very excited!!

Such cute pictures of the grandkids with the fire trucks. Hope you have fun on you blogger visit.

Awwww, such cute pictures. I cannot believe how fast Sydney and Cameron are growing, and look at that sweet Maddie with her sunglasses on. Priceless.

I'm happy you're meeting Kari and know you'll have a great time. Please tell I said Hello and that I'm the one who always agrees with her politics (I mean if that subject comes up!) :)

Joan, You ARE a strong woman; I'd take my hat off to you if I was wearin' one. :)

Take care; enjoy life~it's what it's all about. ((((hugs)))

Your little firemen/fireladies are SO sweet!! I can see from the smiles that they were having a great time.

I'd have been a little concerned about that dummy too.

You and Kari had fun now, ya hear?

Donna said...

Little ones are always fascinated when they visit a firehouse and meet the firemen! What a great outing for them!

And I am very jealous that you are getting to meet up with Kari (and vice versa, LOL)! I love her tell-it-like-it-is posts and always try to leave a supportive comment.

And YOU, my dear, are coming out of this period as stronger and wiser. Don't worry about the blogging frequency - just take time to heal. {{{hugs}}}

Joan!! How is it that you and I have never met?? Well, we have to rectify this!
I am in Ohio too and spent Friday with Kari! I know you two were to see one another yesterday. I am sorry we have not met until now but so glad we finally have!!
Love to you,

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

So sweet and lots of fun..m..
