We had a fun play-date at Chickfila that morning then headed up to the school and joined in with one of the classes during their presentations. First up was the ambulance!
I even learned a little something...did you know when an ambulance or funeral or anything else is coming that you are supposed to pull over to the right side of the road? Even if you're in the opposite lane of traffic you still pull off to the right until they can pass.
You can tell when Kye is listening b/c that tongue will be out ;)

Kye was excited to see the ambulance, because he's never seen one before, but he was even more excited to see the firetruck. We pass by a fire station every morning on the way to school and always look to see the firetrucks and wave hey to them.
Have you ever seen "the jaws of life" before? Um me either. I was pretty shocked that he showed us them and that he talked about them...I mean no one really wants to know about that right?!? It's one of those things we all hope we never have to see or experience!

I love how Kye never takes his eyes off the fireman ;)
here). They discussed fire safety and what the kids should all do if there is a fire in our home. One of the firemen also put on all the gear and, again, Kye wasn't too fond of it. I can see why it's scary for a child! I'm thankful for our house lay out and that Kye's room is directly across the hall from ours because if there ever is a fire we can scoop him up on our way out the door very easily (Blitzen's is directly beside Kye's so another easy grab). It's gonna make me more nervous once baby #3 comes along and Kye moves his bedroom to upstairs. By then we'll have to have a fire escape plan!
The fire fighters all loved Kye's shirt and it got him some special attention ;)
He thought he was so cool getting to stand on the front of the fire truck!
We went back to the ambulance while we waited on the policeman to be ready for his presentation and the ambulance guy brought out a mini ambulance that he drove around and it even talked! It was really neat and the younger kids loved it. We even saw Colt with his class and I tried to stay away from them so Kye wouldn't distract Colt and cause any problems!
Kye really enjoyed seeing all the trucks and I'm thankful the school invited us to come!
