I took Cache up to PG on Friday night so we could see the Life Flight Helicopter land at the Fire Station. He played on the fire trucks and later that evening Cody, Cache, and I walked through the carnival with our friends Marc and Jessica (was it full of crazy carnies? You betcha). Cache went on a few rides and had a total blast! Then we all went to get strawberry shakes (yummy) before calling it a night.
This morning was the parade, so I drove Cache over to the Fire Station so he could ride on the Fire Engine with the other fire kids. While I'd like to think he had a great time (he did sound excited when we were in the car on the way there), I think he was a little freaked out to be on top of the Engine. Cody walked with the Honor Guard, he looked very handsome in his dress blues! PG is sort of a small town, so the parade only lasted about an hour. After that we went to the Fire Station and had a big lunch with everyone in the department.

It's been a long couple of days and I know Cody is very happy that Strawberry Days is over! I will admit that I enjoyed the perks of being a Fire Wife during the festival, we got reserved seating at the events and some special treatment. It was very fun, but I'm glad I have a year to gear up for the next one...
