Going to the fire station never gets old… (Perhaps because we only go 1 – 2 times a year!) None-the-less, the kids get to see their daddy, play on fire equipment, and raid a freezer stocked full of ice cream! And, for Thanksgiving they also get to enjoy a wonderful meal, play on scooters, and meet other firefighters’ kids. (Best of all, I don’t have to cook or clean!)
Now that Papa is captain, we actually got to take the kids for a ride on the fire truck!
The workout room also proved to be a hit this year!
Allison also taught her dad and I how to play chess. I won’t tell you how many times we played, but it has become quite addicting for us all!
I didn’t take a picture of the food, though I think it was one of the best Thanksgiving meals I’ve ever had. It was the first stuffing that I LOVED. And, the sweet potatoes… covered in coconut and pecans instead of marshmallows. Ok, I have to stop… I’m getting too hungry!
After dinner, the kiddos hit it off with the other kids with a game of “Tom Turkey.” After that, they were outside for hours… not on scooters, but on the station rolling chairs. Allison even got to go on a call with Daniel before going home! Everybody was sad when it was time to go home, but they tried to stay awake so they could hear the Christmas music on the radio; another tradition! Yes, we are very blessed!
