A Day at the Firehouse

A few weekends ago we took Caleb on an adventure that we knew he would love.  My child is all about cars, fire trucks, trains, cars, firetrucks, trains (you get the picture). He is all boy when it comes to this joy of childhood.  We have daily conversations about the choo choo, the big truck and his car, so I knew he would love our surprise.

My father in law is a firefighter, and he was working at the station the day of the surprise.  We told Caleb we were going to see "Pa" (his name for all grandpas).  Once we arrived, and Caleb saw the big trucks he was in heaven.  Looking at them up close and personal was enough to make him giddy, but when Grandpa allowed him to "drive" them, honk the horn, and see the lights he was in HEAVEN!!

I was so happy seeing my little mans face light up, and it was so great that he was able to share that time with his grandpa.  He knows grandpa is a firefighter, but seeing it in person is a whole lot more exciting than seeing firefighter pictures in a book.  He is so cute :) I swear I could squeeze him to death!

In other Caleb news he is completely potty trained and in big boy undies now! He is also really catching on to "learning".  Today he walked in his room, went to his learning board and pointed out "orannnng" (orange), and "triiing" (triangle) if I can just convince him that the letter D is not an O (so hard to distinguish)!

i just happened to see your comment for the giveaway over on The Macs blog where you said your daughter's name is mckinlee. just had to say that that is also my daughter's name spelled exactly like that! i almost never hear her name and definitely never spelled the same way! my daughter is now 12 and goes by her middle name at school, which is skye. your mckinlee sure is a doll!
