Last week we received a flyer in our mailbox for a community BBQ being organized by one of the city council members. And since I didn’t really want to cook dinner yesterday, we decided to go and check it out. Let me tell you, this event was so much more than I had expected!Can you believe that last weekend this man made a life-size tractor out of balloons?! Sheesh! That’s talent!We got to check out a fire truck before it got called away with it’s sirens blaring.We sat inside an ambulance and chatted with some paramedics.Tried out both front and back seats in a police cruiser.Ray’s Reptiles were on hand to show us some amazing creatures.Like a scorpion.And a strange poisonous frog.And a monitor lizard.Faces got painted.And we rode one of the new double decker city buses, too! (On the upper level, of course!)It turned out to be a really great way to spend the evening!
