Here are the pictures of our field trip to the fire station this morning.
Curly and Abbie in front of the antique fire truck. I must mention that Abbie is Curly's first real friend and Curly is constantly saying her name. Anytime I mention going somewhere for the day she always asks, Abbie, Abbie?, hoping that Abbie will somehow be involved in the day's activities.
They tried to explain to the kids that you shouldn't be scared of the firemen; they are there to help you. They didn't need to do too much explaining to Curly, she was totally on board!! I think we might have a sucker for a man in uniform :)
Here she is practicing her Stop, Drop and Roll.
Because she was willing to volunteer for the Stop, Drop and Roll she got a special hat; you can tell she's very proud.

I've always wanted to make a quilt. My mom has made some cute ones in the past and I've always thought it would be fun to try it out. I found out very quickly that it's definitely a labor of love, but worth every second. I didn't follow a pattern, I figured I'd just go with the flow, luckily I think it turned out pretty cute.
I actually made this one for Curly's up coming birthday, but I told her when I started it that it was for her, so she would stand by me as I was working on it and say - mine, mine! I couldn't resist giving it to her just a little early.
Stay tuned for the next one... I already have big plans!!

First stop - Grandma and Grandpa's house
Curly in her favorite toy, her little red car. She's also pretty fond of Khloe, Uncle Ben and Aunt Becca's dog.
