Hall of Flame

Took the kiddos to meet friends at The Hall Of Flame the world's LARGEST Firefighting museum.
It was AWESOME. Well, the boy loved it. Baby was along for the ride.
 Behold...the pictures.
A little play area had horses just the right size for three-year-olds to climb. :)
The baby stayed right where you see her almost the entire time we were in the play area. She LOVED these horsies!
You can kind of see some other kids in the background. It took a lot of coaxing to get S to give up the steering wheel, even for a moment. He adored pretending to drive this 1951 fire engine, the only real fire engine on which the kids were allowed to play. 
(this is stock footage from the website)

So is this "parades only" hose carriage. I thought it was pretty, so I'm including it. 

Back to the children:

here's my Little Chief driving a miniature. He sure does love driving! Maybe he is my kid, after all...
If you annoyed by the poor quality of images, please tell the Dear Husband that I need a better camera...and lessons. :)
Some other cool things at this museum I didn't get pictures of are: a pole the kids can slide down, a model house showing fire dangers, a play house with fire dangers, helmets from around the world, over 2k patches, two old dispatch stations, and a place to hear real live fire calls happening in REAL TIME. So cool! 

Thanks D and kids, for an AWESOME morning. The best part? Both kids fell asleep on the ride home. Blessed day!

Oh, so fun! I had to run some things to Jake at work today and he was all set to show the kids the station (he's posted at a downtown fire station 3 days a week) and maybe even the truck. But, alas, all three munchkins were sound asleep by the time we got there. Oh well, next time.
