This morning Ben and I decided to take Owen to the local firehouse for a pancake breakfast and an up-close look at one of his favorite things: a fire engine! Since it was a nice day (hot again, but I'm not complaining), we hooked up Owen's bike trailer and got our exercise on the way there and back ~ a little over 4.5 miles round trip.
Owen was a little overwhelmed by the size of the real fire engine compared to his toy. He was a little timid about climbing up into the truck and didn't want to try on the helmet. But we do think he had a fun morning overall. I have a feeling we'll visit the firehouse many more times as our little boy grows up. :)
