Fire Station Field Trip

This past Sunday afternoon Mara Kate and I joined Katie, Ella Ann and Rane for Sundaes on Sunday and story time at the fire station down the street from their house. They were serving up free ice cream for the kids and then finished up the event with a story time with books read to the kids by the firemen. It was a really neat experience for the girls and I counted it as a home school field trip too! It was fun and still educational!

The girls on the way to story time.

Baby Rane went too!

Mara Kate and Ella Ann were the 2nd and 3rd people in line!

Enjoying that sweet, cold goodness!

Story time.

"If you Give a Mouse a Cookie"

Mara Kate actually has a book about a fire man and his job at the fire station and when I told her where we were going she told me she wanted to bring her book...Big Frank's Fire Truck...so, I let her. When we got there she decided to show the fire captain the book she brought. After he read one book he found Mara Kate in the crowd and asked if he could read her book next....he told everyone the book was compliments of Mara Kate and everyone gave her a hand! She thought she was very special that the book she brought with her ended up being one the fire captain read to the entire group of kids. It was a really neat experience!!

Reading about Big Frank, but he changed all the names of the stations and roads to ones here in Atlanta---very fun!

Sounds like a great outing. Fire stations, and maybe police stations also, in other cities should do this. Glad you had fun!

Katie said...
