What a FUN Day!

I spent the better part of the afternoon with my nephew, Tyler (or as his Uncle Kenny nicknamed him Chunky Monkey.) We went to the firehall to visit Uncle and to see the firetrucks. They were washing them and hosing out the bays, probably to get ready for the Memorial Day parade on Monday. All that work was for nothing, since they unfortunately were called to a structure fire this evening. (The trucks will get washed again, the unfortunate part was that someone's home was destroyed. I am always so sad to think about home fires.) Chunk got to climb all through the trucks and ask about all the equipment that was in them.
The playground was our next stop. Hooversville got a beautiful new playground. We checked out all the new slides and climbing stuff. Chunk decided that he liked the spiral slide and the fireman's pole best. I liked all the warm sunshine and that gorgeous blue sky!
The real reason for the trip to town was to see the MedStar helicopter from Conemaugh Medical Center. It was EMS week and they always plan lots of great activities for the community. Chunk and Uncle checked out the medical helicopter while I took a mess of pictures.
We had hotdogs and sodas and since Chunk was a VERY GOOD BOY we even stopped for ice cream on the way home. (And then I took a nap!)
Take care!
