I am all about free or cheap local events that get our family outdoors. It’s great subscribing to macaroni kid, red tricycle, and parent map, because I get emails all the time outlining upcoming fun! We decided to check out Fire Safety Day in Seattle. The event was in the parking lot of the Museum of Flight which made it even cooler since we got to see lots of planes taking off the whole time.
This post may look a bit like our touch a truck photos, but this was great because there were not nearly as many people. Lines were only like 2 or 3 kids at the most. They had a lot of safety vehicles, and booths, but Rowan’s favorite (of course) was the rescue helicopter. All of the firefighters, police officers, pilots, etc.. were super great and made Rowan feel really special. He got stickers, and activity books, and all sorts of goodies. Here are some pictures I took on my phone.
In absolute awe sitting in the helicopter. He says he wants to be a “helicopter man” when he grows up. Wouldn’t be surprised. :) Hopefully this is the ONLY time in life I see him in the back of a police car, lol. Meeting Sparky the dog. Tried to put Isla in a mini fire truck. She wasn’t so sure about it. I had to take this pic because I just think it’s cute to see Russ with both kids and my girly diaper bag, ha! This fire hydrant was like a little robot that moved around and talked to the kids. Rowan was actually kind of scared of it but wanted to watch the other kids interact. Cute photo op, but nearly impossible to get Rowan to look at me. Cool planes all around! It’s fun having a toddler boy!
