Fire Station!

Grant's preschool class took a field trip to the fire station today! It was so cool! We got to see the fire trucks and even try on some of the gear! They pulled out the big ladder truck and raised the ladder up and down for the kids and had one fireman climb all the way to the top! Grant just loved it all! He was a bit frightened of the Fireman wearing the complete gear with the face mask but once the mask came off he was ready to try on everything. Here are a few pictures I took!

A very useful Mommy

Many of you know Grant's obsession with Thomas the tank engine. He loves to play trains ALL the time at any time of the day. We have gotten so used to playing Thomas that Peter and I often use their lingo in our everyday language. One of the things Sir Toppemhat (the railway controller) always says to the engines is that they are very "useful". This morning while I was checking my email, Grant sauntered up to me and said very matter of factly, "will you put on toons and be a very useful Mommy?" Of course I want to be a useful Mommy, I don't want to be sent to the scrap yard!

Trip to IN

Grant, Maggie and I just got back from a 10 day trip to IN! We had so much fun visiting friends and family. Grant and Maggie spent a lot of time with Grandma and Papa King, Aunt Susie and Uncle Chet, Uncle Phil and Aunt Lisa and all of their cousins. We got to celebrate Halloween there, visit Grammy Singleton and even got to see Busha! Grant got to play with Ava and Elsie at Aunt Amy and Uncle Brandon's house and he did lots of yard work with Papa!
