Fire Station + New Park

Yesterday felt like the last warm day of 2011. Today is cold and gloomy and Bun and I were cooped up inside almost all day.

I’m glad we made the most of it yesterday. Since it was Fire Safety Month, we toured our local fire station and then after nap time we explored a brand new park in our area.

Besides, I had to test out my iPhone 4S. It is so much cooler than my old clunky blackberry. I absolutely adore the flipview camera feature.

I was unsure if Bun would have fun, since we were in a group of slightly older kids, but he absolutely loved the fire station or as he calls it – Fire Truck House.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also downloaded instagram on my iPhone. I am hooked!

mmm

Missing from pictures was the Fire Station’s Ambulance- Or Bun’s new love. He has been talking about the fire station non stop today, especially the Ambulance (Bun word- Adumance)

The Park

I read about Old Chapel Hill Park on this great website for Durham Moms and after nap time drove out to check it out with the Bun.  It had cool modern equipment that I haven’t seen in any other park in our area.

I don’t know if it was the time of day, but we didn’t really see too many kids Bun’s age, they were all older, so we mostly played by ourselves. But we had a great time anyway.

When we drove home, Bun didn’t want to go inside so we headed out to the trail behind our house for some leaf stomping fun.


Because iphone uploads the photo on iPhoto on my mac, I played around in iPhoto for the first time today. I don’t care for it too much- I still prefer Picasa and Photoshop, but it was fun to play around.

Hence the overload of filters and effects.

  1. Oh how fun! Can you just show up at the Firestation and ask for a tour? Hmmm, I’m curious. My boy would love that!

    Great pictures! & yay for your new phone 🙂

    • Maegan, We went on the tour through a mommy group, but I have friends who just walk over to their local fire station and if they don’t have an emergency, the firefighters always let the kids explore the fire trucks and the station.
