Fireman Avery

This weekend our local fire department held an open house to help teach kids about fire safety. Avery spends a good portion of each day dressed in his fire gear putting out imaginary fires throughout our house and rescuing pretend kittens from dire straits. So when I heard about this event, I could hardly wait to take Avery. He got to see the inside of the fire house, sit in a fire truck, and get inside a helicopter which landed in the parking lot. There was even an obstacle course set up for the kids. It was so fun to see him in his element and absorbing everything. Afterwards I asked him what his favorite part was, and he said it was sitting in the fire truck.
“Look! A pumper truck!”

Avery crawled through a tunnel…

…to drag this poor dummy from harm’s way

Then he put out the fire and saved the day

“Gimme five!”
