Preschool Field Trip

Kaitlynn and I were invited to go with MawMaw and her preschool to a field trip to tour the Mehlville Fire Department and the kitchen at Fortel's Pizza Den. Touring the Fire Department was really neat. The kids got to see their living quarters, the fire trucks, check out their uniforms and the device they use to find people when they are trapped in a burning building. The kids all got to sit in a fire truck and have their picture taken. They all received fire hats, pencils and a magnet, too. It was really bittersweet and reinforces how important my brother is and what a hero he is everyday for putting his life on the line to save other people's lives. How cool it is to be able to know a hero personally! It also made me realize that I don't pray nearly enough for his continued safety. After the fire department tour, we went to Fortel's Pizza Den. I missed the tour, but apparently the kids got to touch the pizza dough, but not much else due to health regulations. We had some delicious pizza and the kids played in the game room. Kaitlynn passed out on the way home, which was really nice since she has been giving up naps lately.

I bet the kids had a lot of fun. Fire trucks and fire men are so fascinating to young children.

Have a wonderful weekend!

We always enjoyed a field trip to the local fire department, but I bet it was extra special for your daughter to see her uncle as such a hero! Thanks for linking up to Field Trip Friday, I hope you'll stop back again. Blessings!:)
