Liam, like many little boys, loves firetrucks & firemen. Caroline has always had a fondness for ambulances and doctors and nurses. So when the Hampton Bays Fire Department held their annual open house, we HAD to go. Liam put on his best shirt for it. Caroline fancied herself up, too. Face painting, hot dogs, emergency vehicles galore and a ride on a fire truck—a great way to spend the afternoon.
It was great to see them still so excited about these interests. It was about two years ago when they had their first ride in a fire truck and you would have thought today was the first time all over again—they were that excited. I often wonder when (or if) they will move on from some of the things they love now. I know some kids grow up and leave behind some of those ideas about being a hero and serving their communities. I’m glad they aren’t ready to let go just yet.
Just for fun, here are those pictures from two years ago.
