A local fire station had an open house over the weekend. They landed a helicopter and then let children sit in it and see it.
There was a nice line waiting to get a turn to pretend to be the pilot.
Not everyone wanted to be the pilot though.
Right after these pictures the battery in my camera ran out, but they also had the chance to use one of the small hoses.
Eight years ago we did the same activity, I have to dig around for that picture because it was so cute!
The firefighter joked with them that if they did too good a job they might be earning themselves more chores come spring.
We lucked out with a beautiful day for this event. They also had food, safety information, raffles, a bake sale and a demonstration of the jaws of life and taking a car apart along with all the emergency vehicles, equipment and uniforms.
