Firefighters are the bomb.
Last week, I asked a guy I work with if I could bring the kids by the VFD so Claire could check out the trucks and such up close and personal. She tells me on a daily basis that she wants to be a firefighter when she grows up, so why not indulge her? It’s her first career choice, you know. When I was her age, I wanted to be a hair cutter because I liked kids. Three year olds.
Trying on the pants and boots first!
The helmet had to be held for her otherwise she’d have fallen over due to its weight. The suit alone weighs at least 25 pounds.
While Claire was getting suited up, Luca did what he does best: Check himself out and get dirty.
Claire and Luca each got a coloring book, crayons, badge, water bottle and tattoos!
All in all, it was a super fun time. I’m glad it happened today since Matt’s on a flight to Dallas right now and Claire was already missing him this morning. I think today helped her to forget about how he’ll be gone for a few days.
And I’m pretty sure this made their year.
