My sister-in-law called me one morning and told me that some Firefighters would be at a park near them spraying children. I couldn't stop laughing at the thought and was so excited that I could hardly stand it. Oh my, was it ever fun. You could not have been there and not have a smile from ear to ear the whole time. I can't wait to do it again next year. I am dying for the station by our house to come do it for us, I made one attempt to arrange it and failed. I may give it another try. Does anyone in our neighborhood know the firefighters down the street? Can anyone pull some strings? I think it was the funnest, happiest evening of our summer, for kids and adults alike.
We sort of developed a crush on the firemen (come on, who doesn't?) In fact, my mom suggested I take a picture of the back of their shirt and as I was shooting she said, "Jane, I told you to shoot his back, not his rear end!" ha ha ha, she was kidding people!
