We visited two Fire Stations yesterday - one was closed, and one was open but there was no one there. We went inside anyway and we had fun. The boys were dressed up as firefighters and they ah-ed and oh-ed at the big fire engines, the hoses, the red axes, and the big boots. The only sad thing about it was noticing that the flag was flying half-mast in honor of the Police Officers killed in Dallas last week. And this is a shitty thing that's happening right now, but we can't stop and we won't stop raising our kids in a spirit of love, respect, and compassion.
