A New Firefighter In Town

May 20, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

You know that saying about boys and their toys. Well for some little boys that never changes. Some grow up to become the men that they idolized as a child. A Army man, Police man, or a Fireman. I don't see a single problem with that. Men and woman they grown up to serve for their country and city are some of the best kind of people. Why is this so important to me, why do I know so much about this? Because my husband is a my hero. He is a fireman. I am very proud of him and the things he does to help others. With that being said lets get back to the New Firefighter in town. I decided I wanted to host Firefighter mini sessions to let the children of our community get the experience of a firefighter.

I was not prepared for the amount of cuteness that would arrive that day. These boys were here and ready and just too cute. To see the look of awe in each of their little faces was priceless. The ran around the bay of the fire station with wide eyes and huge smiles. They were so excited they didn't know what they wanted to check out first. It was sensory overload for them and us pesky adults also wanted them to look at us and smile. Silly adults.

As each kid came for their session they got to come and chat with my husband the firefighter and ask him all kinds of questions. After that each child was loaded up in fire gear. They wore the pants and helmet. Most of them the helmet weighted more that they did. But they were sure to hold it up the best they could to see and be excited. The laughs and laughs as they tried to walk around in that heavy gear was priceless. Mr Tim took them all around the different areas of the fire truck and answered all of the questions they had and us pesky adults asked for a look, a glance or a smile.  I'm not sure what was the funnest part of the day but they sure did like ringing that bell. 

I was very thankful for each child and family that came out that day. Thankful for the donation to make to the fire department. But even more excited for a child to feel like what it is like to be a hero. That maybe one day they might go into the service to protect and serve others. 

With that being said please make sure you have a fire plan in place for your home in case of a fire and practice it so children know what to do. I thank each one of you for coming out and a extra big thank you to my husband for being there to answer all of the questions these little ones had.  Please let me know if you are interested in a session like this for your child.
