Fire Truck Fun

June 24, 2010

Last summer our family attended a festival for one of our neighboring towns.  There was bingo, a playground, ice cream, and a silent auction.  The silent auction was not a huge attraction for some reason.  In fact, very few of the items had any bids at all.  I felt really bad for the organizers and thus guilted myself into bidding on something.  Evidently, I was the only bid.  That is how my son ended up with a fire truck at his daycare.

For only $20, I won a voucher to have a fire truck come to a “party”.  While we are planning on having a party for Edward’s birthday in July, I thought the fire truck would get more kiddo fun from a day at the daycare brimming with little ones than from a mostly adult family birthday party.  So, on Monday, the truck arrived.

As you can see, the kids had a blast.

They got to hang out in the fire truck….

spray water from the hose…

and cavort with real firemen…

Plus, they got cool hats!

It was such a good time that the daycare a couple of doors over joined in the fun.

Yes, I could have spent the $20 on a pillow or candle, but isn’t this picture way better than those things?

    What fun to see the kid’s reactions, especially Edward’s. Good job, Mom.
