To The Rescue!

Does anyone else ever go to bed with the sound of fire trucks ringing in their ears? Or is it just me? Anyone that knows my boys, knows that they can imitate the sound of a fire truck almost exactly. It's loud, ear-piercing and down-right annoying sometimes! (Especially when the truck cart at Strack magically turns into a fire truck.) I have to say though that when they are firefighters, usually they are playing together - which is really nice. My boys have "put out" the fire in every room of our house!

Here they are in their fire truck (the chairs in a row, tomorrow it could be a train - you just never know!). Ben's making phone calls back there.

Here's Simon: right hand is a flashing light, left hand is the horn.

Funny thing is - these moments don't look loud...but they really are! So loud. I have a headache just thinking about it!

O.K. ~ So I'm living proof that it is definitely loud, ear-piercing sounds. In fact, they do it so much that now they have my Brett doing it too! Thanks Si and Ben!! :)

That is funny. Something I have to look forward too i guess.

Connor has decided to make up songs and belt them out at the top of his lungs.

It's really thanks to Simon! He started it! Wait, maybe I started it...I do love the fire trucks!! But I don't make siren noises all day long. Yeah, it's Simon's fault! :)

I bet that is so cute Kath. I could just see him and David belting out a number together. I'm sure they do that all the time, right?
