firetrucks, firetrucks, and more firetrucks!

 Last week we did something really fun.  The company that makes a lot of the firetrucks all over the world is not too far from where we live.  They were celebrating 100 years and had a fun family event.  It started with a firetruck parade.  There were so many different kinds of firetrucks, and they just kept coming!

 This yellow firetruck is one they just made and will be sending to Hawaii.  There were also a bunch that were ready to go to China, all across the U.S., and a few that because all the writing was in a foreign language, we weren't sure where they we headed!

 We got to see inside the factory and see firetrucks in all stages of completion.  It was pretty fascinating!

 Krew loved being up in the firetruck!  Somewhere I have a picture of Kade and Ky in a firetruck at about this same age.

 As we were walking out, Bart saw the governor there, talking to people and posing for pictures.  So, of course he wanted a picture taken with him.
On the way home, we stopped off at Grandma and Grandpa's house.  Krew likes their cow.

 Then, we all went to the farm where grandpa and Sadie have some cows.  Krew really liked this part.  He's talked about it a lot since then.  We even drove past a farm a few days ago, and he could smell the cows.  So, he had to tell us all about this trip to the farm, all over again!
