Last week Schaeffer Jo and I spent a day in the City with Sara, Eli and Jane. The Winklers live across from a Chicago Fire Department Station–who ‘happened’ to be putting up their Christmas lights with a ladder truck. 
Schaeffer, Eli and I walked over to see the firemen and the truck—they were so kind, the kids not only got to sit in the truck, but also got to stand on top of the truck, by the ladder! Pretty awesome!
