A couple of weekends ago we headed a few hours out of town to visit our friends, Mike and Jen and their son, Will. We call our kids "The Impatient Triplets" because Sam was born first, in an unplanned homebirth that took 3 1/2 hours start to finish. Then Will was born in the car, on the two minute drive to the hospital. And then Rachel was born in a 12 minute labour. These kids were impatient to get going :)
We decided to visit on this specific Saturday because their region was holding a family fun day with all the service vehicles. And Sam and Rachel had firefighting duties to attend to!
Then they had to vacate the premises because the firefighters got an actual call and really had to vacate the premises. It was a little nuts!
We had such a good time visiting with friends and look forward to hanging out again soon. However, I am not looking forward to the day that Sam, Rachel, and Will might actually be (legitimately) behind the wheels of some of these vehicles. Yikes.
