Way cool right?! We went to the park and magically one of the parents happened to be a fireman. He mentioned it after chatting about how great our boys played together. Before leaving he invited us to use his gear to take pictures. He gave the kids the run down about the special equipment and its purpose and even shared a cool heroic story. It was such a great way for the kids to get a tiny experience on what its like to be a fireman. Thanks to all service members trying to keep the communities safe. You rock!
