Firefighter for a Day!

Is it time yet?

Owen and his crew.

All buckled up and ready to roll!

He's got some room to grow!

At this year's school carnival Owen won a drawing to be a firefighter for a day. Today was the day! Owen was so anxious, he gave me the annoyed look while we were in the parking lot waiting for the fire truck. Lucky for us it showed up early. Owen rode with the team on the truck from the school to the firehouse. Once there, we got the first class tour of the place. It was so much fun! As a "thank you", we are going to take the firefighters some dinner.
