One of the great things about being part of a moms group is having wonderful women who organize the group and group outings. Recently we joined our friends for a tour of a local fire station. I can't recall if I got a tour of a fire station when I was little, though I did get a tour of the Heinz Factory and got a free pickle pin (those rock!!)
We got to see where the fire men sleep/eat/work out/what the do when waiting (nice tv... Ben approved of the recliner). Then the kids got to walk through an ambulance and fire truck.
