Coolest Daddy Ever

My husband is a fire captain.  Recently, he was on the apparatus committee as his department designed and built 2 new fire engines.  


It just so happened that one of them needed a few finishing touches not far from where we live.


And in order to get the engine from the fixer people to the fire station, it was decided that Paul would pick it up, and then drive it in when he went to work the next morning.  


Which meant that for about 12 hours,


we had the coolest house on the block.  


With the coolest Daddy ever.


A truly staggering percentage of our family pictures have been taken in front of various pieces of fire equipment.


The kids never tire of seeing a fire engine.


And Paul never seems to tire of explaining what everything does.


I sat on the front porch with Brianna for a little while, and we laughed and laughed at the cars going by with drivers doing a serious double take at the fire engine in our driveway.

  1. My son would LOVE to live on your block! He couldn't get enough of the fire engines when we went to the fire hall for a field trip in the spring. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Those field trips are great, aren't they? We've gone to the fire station here in our town, even though that's not where Daddy works. It's different when you're getting a group tour.
