The first time I saw the fire truck from our local Cedar Park fire station, I wanted to take pictures with it. The name of the fire truck is the "Quint 2"--how perfect is that? Apparently "quint" fire trucks provide five functions--pump, water tank, fire hose, aerial device and ground ladders---hence the name. Whatever the reason for the name, I knew I needed a picture of my quints on the Quint!
With my mom in town this week, it was the perfect opportunity to go. I called earlier in the week to set up an appointment with the fire station. They were so friendly and even offered to bring the truck to us! I could just imagine the neighbors reaction if a fire truck showed up at our house-----I assured them that it would be no problem to bring the kids to the fire station!
The kids had a blast at the fire station. The firemen gave each of them a fireman hat and badge and they climbed all over the fire truck.
The whole gang
The local Cedar Park Access station heard about our photo shoot and showed up to video the event for their news broadcast. You can see the video here. Ours is the second story and starts at about 00:57 minutes. If you are local and have Time Warner Cable---the story will be broadcast all week on CPTV-10 at 6:30am, 11:30am, 5:30pm, and 10pm daily.
