Visiting the new Ashburn Fire House...

For quite some time now, Adam has been watching the progress of the Ashburn Fire House as they've worked to build a completely new station just a mile down from my folks house. He would tend to ask Grandma & Grandpa to drive by it to see how it was looking. Well, a few weekends ago we got to be part of the grand opening and see the finished product up close and personal. 

It was a wonderful event with all kinds of equipment to check out, "helpers" to meet, activities to take part in and lots of yummy treats as well. Adam was mesmerized by all of it. 

A few highlights were getting to sit in the big fire truck as well as the airport equipment - that thing is huge; meeting one of the EMT's who transported Harper from Fairfax to Fair Oaks - he said he could never forget a name like "Gribble" and showing Adam the type of transport unit and equipment that Harper got to ride in; learning about "Stranger Danger" and getting to break a wood board in the process - this kid can't wait to sign up for Tai Kwon Do; and of course - "sliding" down the pole! 

In between all of that we enjoyed some cotton candy, played with Legos, and even had Adam's blood pressure taken - he's right as rain as they say! 

It's a beautiful new building and at the end of the day Adam enjoyed playing Fireman & EMT with Harper & Liddy! ;)
