On Saturday, we took Alfie to our local firestation’s open day. It was something which we’d been looking forward to all week and it didn’t disappoint. He went in a fire engine totally by chance back in April. Since then, he’s been to a couple of open days with Michael whilst I’ve been at work and I was sad to have missed out.
The sun was shining, it was as glorious day and the smile on my boys face made standing around in the heat at 7 months pregnant, totally worthwhile. He absolutely loved it! Michael and I were also really impressed with how much effort they’d gone to.
At the front of the fire station was a large digger and they had set up a little game – they’d put footballs on top of cones and the kids had to try and knock them off in to the bucket below.
There was such a big selection of things for the kids to go in – fire engines, fast response cars, an ambulance and a speedboat. The day was so well organised and didn’t cost anything. My only regret is we didn’t get there earlier!
