A Visit to the Firestation

I've been wanting to take Veronica to visit my dad at work. After the fire department visited her at school a while back, she's been all about fire fighters and their dogs. He visits the house during his shift sometimes, but he drives his own little personal truck, which isn't nearly as exciting as the real big fire trucks.

I'm pretty sure yesterday was the first time I've taken the girls to visit my dad at the station. It's a totally different experience when you get to tour the station. There were a few guys having lunch, but my dad showed us around the sleeping areas and offices.

The girls climbed up in the truck and tried on some gear. Adri wasn't a huge fan and mostly clung to me. The guys unloaded some of the big gear along with an ax pick thing and a ladder from the side of the truck.

Although I wasn't all that excited about spending so much time at home, I'm glad that we've gotten out and explored some while we've been in Miami. As much as I don't like this big city feel, it totally beats being stuck in the middle of nowhere.

Have a happy hump day!

Love, Alex
