Recently, we headed out early, with every intention of taking the kids to the Fire Fighters Expo nearby. We figured they would have a bunch of trucks on display, and a lot of fun stuff for the kids.

Unfortunately, it cost more than we wanted to spend to get a day pass -- and would up being more of a display of technology. They had a couple trucks outside -- and our kids loved seeing them raise and lower their buckets. And they also got to jump around in a bounce house for a bit before we all started melting.

Not really knowing what else to do, we decided to go check out the kids museum.

I think everyone in the state had the same idea -- the place was PACKED -- which was hard on my non-crowd-loving husband, but he did his best to tough it out so the kids could have some fun.

They enjoyed some water play ...

Drove a few cars ... 

Played dress-up

Pretended to be firemen ... 

And even got to be EMT's in the back of an Ambulance! 

Other than being packed, the place was great!! If we lived closer, it would definitely be worth a membership! I think next time we'll take the kids to the one a little bit closer to home, though -- at least then if its crowded, it won't take us as long with two exhausted kids to get home! 


  1. I love the firemen gear, super cute!

  2. I've always wanted to go to a place like that. Just for myself though. Lol. It would be nice to take the girls.

  3. What a neat looking kids museum. I'm glad you had a nice family outing and escaped the heat. I really need to escape the heat too.

  4. That basically looks like the coolest museum ever!
