My niece, Katherine, informed me that I have not blogged in quite a long time. And she is right. I think there are quite allot of things I could update you with.
Carol, Anna and I are at the "Cabin" with Baba this week. For a few days it will just be us girls, until Paw Paw and Daddy come up. We miss Daddy quite a bit when we are here, but it is so cool and beautiful that we stay distracted by playing out side and visiting summer friends.

Carol has been excited to see an ambulance or fire truck here and there. She likes the lights, sounds and the size. She always waves and talks to the trucks whenever we pass them.
This morning we walked up to the "old" fire station. For some reason all fire men are really nice! They were great about letting Carol look at the trucks and get in, and even turned on the lights and computer for her to see. She was real scared to sit in the tall truck, but she was willing to stand on the ambulance.

The fire men said that the "new" fire station would have more tucks and be more fun, we should take her there.

On the way to Safeway a fire truck pulled up next to us. Carol was waving and shouting out the window. She wanted to share her stickers with the fire men. They waved back.

After our shopping we popped in the "new" fire station. There we saw several fire trucks and an ambulance. Again, the Fire men were AMAZING. So kind and gentle with little Carol and even Anna. This time Carol was brave enough to sit in the fire truck. She got a new red hat and cool Gold sticker. She is thrilled.! She talked about the fire trucks and fire men, even as she was going down for a nap. It was a great adventure.!!Even Anna sat in the drivers seat.


  1. This is great! That was so nice for the firemen to entertain our kiddos like that.

  2. I love these pictures!! Good job Erin!

  3. I have been meaning to take Matthew to a fire station too!! How cute- and I agree. I have never met an impolite or mean firefighter.

    They are true gentlemen and women and I am so thankful they do such a hard job!
