Our MOPs group put an event together to take our youngsters to see the local fire department. Thank you to all the fire fighters at Peoria Fire Station 197. All of the kids just had soooo much fun. The fire men gave us a tour of the inside of the station including their living quarters. Then they took us to the bay. When my son stepped into it he said, “OH WOW!” which as a mom just confirmed that this was exactly what we should be doing on a Saturday morning.
While in the bay, the fire fighers allowed the children inside, then showed the children all the special tools they have and then one fire fighter showed the children the “special cloths”. The fire fighter slowly put on the protective clothing, allowing the children to touch and also to see that he was still him under the cloths.
The Saturday before, Zander was in a bike accident. You will see in the photos where he was very scrapped up. (editor’s note: Its been a month now and he’s doing and looks fantastic.)
You will also notice; I am VERY pregnant. I only 6 days from giving birth when these photos were taken.
