He showed us the set up of the truck - in and out - and raised the ladder, which the kids loved. I so would not want to be at the end of it, no way.
When Toby saw the "moving tool chest", I think he was a little jealous.
In checking out the ambulance, Monty shared some stories of the types of calls they receive - everything from car wrecks to "I have a headache". And though I'm sure they would like to give such trifling callers a piece of their minds, they have to respond.
In one of the common rooms, there are some toys available for the firemen's children to use during family days. Of course, my kids found these pretty quick.

Just one corsage would have looked kind of weird, so I added another near the hem.
And now I have a shirt that I'm not embarrassed to wear. Not repurposed, really, just refreshed.

What do you think? I'm rather pleased with it. All in, about 13 inches came off. It's all contained in a nice long ponytail, ready to be donated to Locks of Love. And the best of it is that it didn't cost a cent - my sweet mother-in-law did the cutting. Bless her, she was very nervous about it, but she faced her fear and did a fine job - and she didn't even take revenge for moving her boy so far away. What a treasure!
Whoa - has anyone else ever handed their mother-in-law a pair of scissors and invited them to chop away? I'll have to give her an extra hug today.
