The beary big firefighter



This is a bit of a gratuitous post just to take part in Debbie’s Photo Friday on DeliciousBaby. Any excuse to show off even more photos of my kids :)

The photo was taken at Melbourne Fire Station in Melbourne, Australia. When we visited in 2000, with some friends and their two sons, I was pregnant with BigB and CAM was 3 1/2. I picked up a local guidebook on kid-friendly activities in Melbourne and we discovered that the fire station was open for visitors. It was a perfect thing to do with two four-year-old boys.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    How cute is that? It is great to find age appropriate treats for kids while traveling!

    Glad to share pictures with you on this photo Friday! Have a good week end!!

    What a great idea. I’ll have to add “fire station” to my mental list of things to do when I can’t dream up a good travel-day activity for the kids. The best part is that there’s always one relatively near by.

    That was such a great day. The whole trip was amazingly organized by Wandermom. It’s great to have such organized friends. We’ve got some other pics of the trip – I’ll have to find and post, but as I am NOT the organizer (or at least I do it in my own way…) it may take a bit of time. :-) XO
