Fun at the Firehouse

Although this time of year is very busy for our family with the end of the summer sports season overlapping with tryouts for next year's season and both back-to-school and a couple of our kids' birthdays all happening one on top of another we still try to squeeze in a little bit of non-soccer-related family fun when we can.

Fire station open house swagThis weekend was our local fire station's open house - a free community event with firetruck bouncy castles and slides, fire hydrant mini-golf and a smoke tunnel obstacle course, games and crafts and a train ride for little ones.

The firehouse was open for tours, fire trucks were set up and open to explore, and we watched the fire crew completely take apart a car in a rescue demonstration.

The kids got their own fire hats and had a chance to practice putting out fires with the fire hose.

I love living in a community with so many fun, free family activities! Check out your local town website, library notice board, and signs at the community centres - you'd be astonished to find out how many organized activities are available in your own community!
