What do you do when you need to get to school in a hurry? You take the firetruck, of course! That is exactly what Lola did today.
The ride to school in a firetruck was the most coveted prize in the raffle held at Lola's school during the Community Day in March. And what do you know? My daughter was the lucky girl who won it! This morning she claimed her prize. At 8 o'clock she reported to the fire department here in town, along with a parent. Ryan was the one to accompany her on this awesome trip. A boy's dream come true! (I don't think it really was his dream but we're going with it anyway.)
When they arrived at school, the entire Elementary School was gathered outside waiting for them. Lola was greeted like a rock star by her classmates. Applause, cheers, and hugs all around. It was so cool!
A school bus is so last year...
All the little boys and girls admired the firetruck. The Chief was happy to tell everyone all about it.
A big Thank You to the Fire Department for this unforgettable ride!
And to top if off, mom got to hitch a ride in the firetruck back to town. No sirens for me, though.
