Building AND Firefighter Training

This morning was another fun-filled time at the Lowe's Build and Grow Clinic. And you might have guessed it, yes, the project was a fire truck. Very cool! What made this clinic probably the best so far is they had our local firefighters and one of their fire trucks there in the parking lot. Sweet! The kids got to listen and watch as one of the firefighters put on their equipment and then, at the end, the firefighters hooked up the truck and hose to a hydrant and each child got to turn on and off the hose. Yeah, Jared REALLY liked that!! Can't blame him. That was very cool :D

Picture overload here! ;) It was a fun morning, just me and the boy!
