Firewoman in Training

Last week, we went to a local fire station with my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group.  Lynley is always fascinated with fire engines though she doesn't like the loud sounds that they make.  The last time that we saw a fire engine that we could get on and sit was at the Easter egg hunt but Lynley was very afraid because the engine was running.  So, going to the fire station was a risk.  She kept her hands over her ears most of the time even though there were never any loud sounds.  After quite a long while, she finally got the courage to get in the fire engine.  Mom had to get in too.

 She loved it once she was in it.  She even tried on the fire hat which is VERY heavy.  She finally asked me to wear it because it was making her dizzy.  No wonder, it probably weighed at least 10 pounds.  After all was said and done, it was a success and Lynley loved it.  She might have loved the fire hydrant outside the station even more.  Fireman are incredible people.  It is amazing the way that they live in order to keep us safe.
