Firefighter pancakes



Every year the firefighters put on a safety fair where they cook up some pancakes and talk to kids (and parents) about safety.  There is everything from “change your fire detector batteries”, to electrical safety, to how to turn off your water/gas, to power outage recommendations, etc.  


We go every year and it is so much fun.  The kids get to see “real” firefighters, climb all over fire trucks and this year was the highlight of them ALL!


Learning how to put out a fire (uhhh… can you say a 4 1/2 year olds dream come true!).  Seriously, they started a fire and taught the kids how to use a fire extinguisher.  The fire fighters were so wonderful with the kids and taught them how to do everything, yell for 911, take the pin out, aim and pull the trigger.  Alex got a really big kick out of it. 


Sara was just a little 6 month old baby last time, and the year before that was in uteruo.  So, this time around she made sure to do some climbing and exploring of all the fire trucks.  No putting out fires this time, but watch out next year!
