One of the guys my mom works with (Mike) is also a Kaysville City fireman--and a really cool guy! He let us take Skye over to the fire station on Wednesday night to see the firetrucks. She also got a Jr. Firefighter hat. Here she is in one of the trucks. Besides seeing them, Mike also took us on a ride in one of the huge trucks! Lance got to sit up front.
My mom, Skye, and I sat in the back. Skye was a bit nervous at first and insisted on sitting on my lap. Before long, though, she was smiling and happy and wanted her own seat! It was so much fun and I'm glad Mike let us come along with him. I would have loved to have seen more and get more pictures, but his pager went off with a real emergency the second we got back to the fire station so he and another fireman had to cruise out in an ambulence.
