As I said yesterday, we got together with Mimi (my stepmom) today. We went to visit my Uncle Mike at work.
The helmet is so heavy that Sonshine couldn't hold his head up, Uncle Mike had to help.
As you can see, a great time was had by all. Gator-boy didn't care as much for the ambulance and Sugars' really didn't like the Firetruck's horn but we all learned a lot and had a great time. Uncle Mike opened all those doors on the firetruck and showed us what all is in there and how it works, it's amazing!! The firefighters wear 75lbs of gear when fighting a fire. Plus carrying any people or pets out of harms way. These are some strong dudes! We saw all around the station too. 3 pantries and 3 refrigerators and a restaruant sized gas stove keep these guys fed. Oh, and let me just say I noted a couple of 85lb dumbells lying around....not to mention the guy who grabbed a pair of low hanging rings, put his feet against the wall laying on his back on the ground, then pulled his entire body up....kinda like reverse pushups. yowzers! I told Uncle Mike I was disappointed though, the station is 1 story tall.....no pole to slide down.
Hat's off to all our firefighters out there keeping us safe!
We went to Mimi and Grandad's house afterward and the boys picked me this fabulous bouquet from Mimi's garden.
What a great day!
