Weekend Adventures

So much for the beautiful weather. This past weekend was filled with rain! We did not have much on the weekend agenda, but I knew we needed to get out of the house. I read in the local paper that a new fire station was opening and the public was invited to tour. This probably does not sound too excited, however, if you have boys you know it is the best thing ever. Again, the weather was terrible, but it worked to our advantage. We were practically the only ones in the station. Which was a delight, no crowds and our own personal tour guide with fireman Dennis. You are probably wondering the same thing I was "Was is with the yellow firetruck?" Yes, it is a fashion statement. No really, there was a study that they conducted that this color is more visible. Yeah, how could you miss it! And now Liberty Township has this awful color as their signature. We have yellow fire hydrants too. Not too appealing is it? It is a good thing we were not here when they voted on this! Yuck!

And some how, my boys found cookies in the fire station. Funny how that always seems to happen.
And our little fireman Holden made the local paper.... here is the link if you are interested.

He is famous in a small township!

Our next outing was to EnterTRAINment Junction. It is an indoor miniature train display. This place was really neat. It was filled with details galore. There were small cities, mountains, and even a piece of home. The boys enjoyed the play area too. I mean really, what boy does not like trains! EnterTRAINment Junction was fun for all of us, just a little pricey. I think this will only be a once a year outing. But at least we crossed off another new place on our list.
