Eli "se-weusly" loves his Auntie Adrienne. He will go to the farm with me if I assure him Auntie Adrienne is there. He will get on a horse if he can ride with her. He is convinced that she will give him presents every time he sees her (because she usually does.)
But, yesterday Eli discovered the most wonderful thing of all about his Auntie Adrienne: she is a fire fighter!!! Not only that, but yesterday she was working at the hall just down the street from my parents' house, so we got to go visit her. Coolest day of Eli's life!
First, we met all the fire fighters at the hall (yes, I sound ultra PC, but when you have a best friend who is a fire-WOMAN, it only makes sense.) Then we got to explore the trucks. Eli made sure Adrienne explained what every truck was, and what every element of each truck was used for.
Then he got to get in and drive.
Then he explored the truck and went through all the equipment.
His favourite thing of all was definitely the "lightsaber."
