Our toddlers were so excited to have a visit from the Mason Fire Department.
They were not able to stay with us for very long but while they were here we got to check out some of their equipment and look at some of the things they carry in the ambulance. One of the firefighters even put on all of his protective gear for the children to see. Some of the toddlers were not so sure about him after he put on his mask. We thanked Andy and Dan for coming to see us with cookies and a big firetruck that the children colored.
