Camas Fire Department Open House

Today, April 5th, I (Chad stayed home to work on the truck) took Colin and Kennedy to the local fire house for their open house. They had a little bit of everything for the entire family. They had local businesses their with booths giving away free stuff about safety, I even got 3 reams of Georgia Pacific Copy Paper for the printer. Clowns were there for the kids (which Colin was not a fan of). Plus they had demonstrations of their K9 unit. Colin's favorite was getting the Fire Badge Tattoo and using the hose to put out the "fire", the ladder truck and eating his hot dog. It was a great morning.

There even was a train engineer their talking about safety of trains. Colin on the way says, "Mom, how am I going to be a train conductor and a fireman when I grow up?" Pretty much, I told him that he could do one in the morning and then in the afternoon do the other. :-)
