Fireman Travis

After much anticipation, we finally made a trip down to the fire station to visit one of Daniel's buddies, who just happens to be a much sought after fire fighter!

We could tell right away Logan would not go near the truck easily.  Like most things that he finds scary, we knew the fire truck would become a point of obsession.  After much silent observation of Travis and Thad checking out the truck, Logan decided to get a little closer.  He eventually let me talk him into sitting in the driver seat on my lap (don't ask how I fit up there with my pregnant belly and a 3 year old on my lap).

Travis in the breathing mask...

and the boys' stunned reaction...

Here we are in the driver's seat.  I'm still not sure how I climbed up there with Logan!

One of the boys' favorite parts--turning the lights on.  I think they made Travis turn them on 3 times.

Thad man saying "cheeeese" in the driver's seat.


and my favorite part....Logan's homemade fireman helmet and firetruck.  For the rest of the night we were demanded to refer to him as "Travis."  Seriously.  Even when he was done being a fireman, he asks "mommy, should Travis go be the lone ranger now?"

Thank you Travis for the fun experience!  I think Daniel and I had just as much fun as the boys checking out the truck and having a tour of the station.

Too Funny! Love the homemade hat and truck - very creative! At least you know you'll be safe having a fireman and the lone ranger in your house! Sounds like a super fun time.

I am right proud to be related to those boyus!! Larger than life--how many things can we find that are larger than life? I hope I am as awestruck about God--He is the only thing larger than life for me anymore.I hope my imitating my Father looks as cute to Him...
