As a matter of fact, as we were checking out the fire truck a second one came along. Then things got really exciting. The firemen broke in the front door and started checking out the house. (Apparently someone left a pot on before leaving the house and it caused a little fire which set off their alarm, which alerted the fire department.)
Once all of that excitement was over and our neighbor came back home (thanks to Josh calling his wife to let her know what was going on), I told Josh to take the boys outside to see the fire trucks up close. Because really, what little boy (or adult boy for that matter) doesn't love to see fire trucks up close and personal? So, the three of them went outside and stood on the front lawn for a minute until the firemen invited them over to check things out.
and they let the boys hang out in the fire truck!
