Heroes in the Neighborhood
We were watching the Eagles game on tv together and saw a firetruck turn down the street adjacent to our house. The boys quickly put their shoes on and we ran outside just in time to see the truck turn the lights off and turn back around. The firefighters saw the small crowd that had gathered and stopped the truck to give out fire hats to the kids. They were doing some planning and there are two houses on a gravel road behind our house and it seems that the closest fire hydrant to those houses are on our street. The boys got to listen as they made a game plan to get water to the houses in the woods if there ever was a need. Then a call came in and the firefighters were off and running, sirens going. Peanut was full of questions and Little Man was in awe.
