Field Trip Friday ~ Firemen


Chestnut Grove Academy Field Trip Friday Blog Hop
It wasn't really a Field Trip but it was pretty cool! Last week we took the kids, Grandma and Papa and went to look at the house we are trying to buy and to buy everyone some badly needed clothes. Well, we stopped for lunch at the Chick-fil-A in Queen Creek, Arizona. The kids were upset when we left and Monkey was crying because we didn't have time for them to play in the play area. As we were crossing the parking lot to our van a fire truck pulled in and Monkey's eyes lit up! The firemen saw my upset children and how they couldn't stop staring at the fire truck. One of the firemen (the one in the photo below) asked if the kids wanted to get inside the truck. The tears stopped immediately and the smiles were huge. Then he asked if they wanted a sticker. Of course they said yes but remained seated in the truck. He told them they could have a sticker if they got out of the truck.  :) I think it is so awesome that these 4 firemen took the time out of their day (and delayed their lunch) for my kids. It totally made the kids' day!
