One of the fire stations was offering free car seat checks today. IMG_1122DFD Station 6 has Lt. Coonts based there. He has been friends with Scott for many years and offered a special treat for the boys if we could make it in today. The crops are still a little wet for picking, so we all headed to town. We made it to the station and passed the safety check, with a few minor changes. IMG_1066Then Lt. Coonts came and invited the boys to check out…the ladder truck!! IMG_1070         As if being at the station wasn’t cool enough they were able to get inside the bucket AND take a ride!!IMG_1108Of course it only got better with a full tour of the station. Scott and the three older boys toured while Reed and I took all the recommendations from the car seat safety crew. IMG_1111IMG_1114What a great time at the station! The boys have been talking about the station non-stop. Lt. Coonts gave them each a coloring book and stickers before we left. The crayons and markers are pretty busy now. We surely appeciate all of their hardwork and dedication. It was so much fun for the boys. Our entire visit might have been 30 minutes, but we are now safer in the car and the boys have renewed their love of firestations and firefighters!!
