A Trip to the Fire Department

This morning we participated in an trip to the Culpeper County Volunteer Fire Department that was organized by the wonderful mom's group that I belong to. We were given a tour of the department and trucks and a demonstration on how a firefighter gets into his gear. It was a lot of fun and Philip had a great time!

Axes and other instruments stowed inside of the fire engine

Various gauges on the truck

Daddy came too even though he was nervous about attending a mom's group get together!

Philip was so small compared to the big fire truck!

Philip is always more comfortable trying new things if his buddy Elijah tries them too!

Taking a turn at the wheel of the antique fire engine!

On their way to an imaginary fire maybe?

"Don't worry, Elijah, we got this!"
