Plano Fire Department Adventure

This summer, I’m trying to capitalize on the fact that Walt is definitely more interested and curious about things, yet he’s not insistent on spending 6+ hours doing something. We’re doing real good if we catch his attention at one thing for an hour.  Luckily, there are so many free and cheap things to do during the summer. So, last week I was perusing www.guidelive.com and noticed that the Plano Fire Department was celebrating it’s 125th anniversary at the Heritage Farmstead. Having grown up in Plano, I have taken many a field trip to the Heritage Farmstead, which is the family home/farm of one of the original families in Plano. All dorkiness aside, I have very fond memories of this place.

Low and behold it remains relatively unchanged, but in a very good way.  Rather than bore you with words, here is our adventure in pictures:

Inspecting a big, shiny fire truck

A very hot Walt and Daddy on the firetruck

Walt loved these chickens. He kept calling them “ducks”

Gobble! Gobble!

Mommy and Walt in front of a very old fire truck

Saying hi to the mules!

A red-cheeked Walt saying bye to a fire truck

About 5 minutes past the exit and this little guy was done 🙂
