This past weekend Maxi and I went with our neighbor and her son to a nearby firehouse for an open house. Many trucks were on display and firemen and women were available to show us around and answer all our questions.
The firetrucks were sparkling clean, full of so many details and, as you can see by the photos above, ginormous. I was happy to watch Maxi and the other kids take it all in. After all, firetrucks are a childhood icon.
They also handed out safety books about what to do should a fire break out in your home - a conversation Thierry and I have yet to have with our boys. They suggest you discuss and plan two exit routes should your house have a fire. Have you ever made such a plan? We haven't, but after reading all the pamphlets, it seems like something we should do.
