I have to say, I kind of like this small-town-thing. While there were people who attended, it was manageable. No one had to wait very long (if at all) to do the activities they wanted to do, and no one seemed to care (well, except to admire and pet) that A. brought a puppy into the building with the food. It was all terribly relaxed, and we had a good time.
Sitting in the fire truck:
They had a place where people could use a fire extinguisher to put out a grill fire.
K. (there was ice cream)
An obstacle course was set-up, where at the end you had to use a hose to knock down the 'fire' in the wooden building's windows. Everyone (meaning G., L., K., Y., and even R.) tried it at least once. I'll spare you the pictures of each of them, because they all pretty much look the same. This one is of L. and K.
They got to sit in police cars, and even turn on the sirens.
Y. and G.
K. again, because it's cute.
Finally, yet one more picture of K., who I think needs to grow a bit before becoming a full-fledged emergency worker.
