Fire Truck, Fire Truck, Fire Truck!

We had a bit of excitement in the neighborhood tonight!

We were eating a late dinner and anticipating an early bed for the kiddos (they had already been bathed!) when our phone rang. It was our neighbor telling us that there was a fire truck outside and that Bruiser needed to see it. So we opened the door. As we watched another truck arrived, then the fire chief in his vehicle, then another truck (yes, that's three so far!), and finally the Hazmat truck! By this time we were out the door and Bruiser was running up and down our yard and the neighbors drooling over the fire trucks!

We came to find out that it was a small mercury spill in a neighbor's home from a broken thermometer - which probably didn't warrant a call to 911 - but they got the call and had to follow state regulations! So bring on the show! Even the news came and we might be on the 11:00 news. If we are so famous, I'll link you to the website!

Bruiser had a blast! He checked out all the trucks with Daddy and even got sit up in one with a real fireman! Who could ask for a better Friday night for a two-year-old! When it was time for them to leave, there lots of waving and horn-beeping. So much for an early bed!


  1. Oh my! I'm so glad that the show of emergency vehicles wasn't necessary for the size of the incident! I can imagine that Bruiser had the time of his life with the 'real deal'!

    Bless you,
