My Son is as Big as a Fire Truck Wheel

Last week, Brendan got to go the fire station and take a tour for a friend’s birthday party and it was a dream come true for him.


IMG_6057 Brendan loved the tour and the firemen were super nice. There were a zillion little kids running around but they managed to keep them entertained and under control (for the most part).

IMG_6060 Brendan somehow always worked his way up to the very front of the crowd so he could get up close and personal with the fire truck. He had no shame about pushing other kids out of his way and I was dealing with the beginnings of a cold, so he got away with a lot that day.

IMG_6062 Brendan also asked “what’s that?” about every 2 seconds. Those fire trucks hold a lot of equipment and Brendan was fascinated by it all.

IMG_6063Brendan got a bit angry when the tour took us to other parts of the station that didn’t involve the trucks but luckily the tour ended by letting the kids walk through the cabin of one of the engines. Brendan managed to sneak back in line to go through twice and he would have gone three times if I hadn’t stopped him.  It was definitely his favorite part.

It was a super fun activity and luckily we got to do it before the blizzard hit us. Best birthday party ever!


  1. Josh ran around and went through again too! Those little boys are too similar!

  2. That's pretty much adorable. Seriously our kids have the same energy level and curiosity level.
