About this blog: I'm a wife, stay-at-home mom, home cook, marathon runner, and PhD. I recently moved to the Silicon Valley after completing my PhD in Social Psychology and becoming a mother one month apart. Before that, I ran seven marathons including Chicago and Boston. Exercise is an integral part of my life. I hope to one day go back to long distance running and tackle the New York City Marathon. Right now I run after my one year old son. Although I am a stay-at-home mom, we are rarely "at home." My mom also stayed at home with my brother and me. She warned me that, although rewarding, it can be isolating. So, with her help, I learned the importance of getting out into the community and meeting other mothers. On the rare occasion when I am at home and have a hand or two free, I squeeze in time to scrapbook. As a new mom, many challenges are thrown my way. I hope my opinions, triumphs, and struggles help experienced parents reminisce, new parents cope, and parents-to-be get an honest glimpse of what the first years of motherhood can entail. (Hide)

One of the most memorable storytimes we attended was the fire department's storytime
last year. And the fire department is coming back to Menlo Park libraries this Thursday, May 26th
Our kids had a great time seeing the fire truck, watching a firefighter put on the uniform, and receiving coloring books and hats.
I'm always impressed when the local fire departments put on or attend
kid-friendly events. From watching a movie at the fire house
to climbing in a firetruck at Touch-a-Truck
to checking out the Hose Wagon at the parade last weekend
, there are so many wonderful firetruck/firefighter events for young kids to enjoy.
We greatly appreciate all of the time and energy the local firefighters put into these events and into educating kids about how to stay safe in an emergency.
What is/was your favorite local fire department event for kids?
