During the summer, the library offers a "meet-n-greet" series where kids can go and see ambulances, firetrucks, police officers, etc. Today was the helicopter! We picked up our neighbor Melissa around 9:20 and went to the field at the high school where the helicopter was scheduled to land at 9:30.
Two hours later, we got to see the helicopter land.
Ava did really well considering she walked about for a little while at first and then was confined to her stroller. Melissa, Ava and I sat in the shade of a big truck for a while as Joe went to get gas and fetch some water. Then Joe took Ava to the van for a while, where she played in the back with all of her toys. Just when we were about to call it quits, the helicopter appeared! Ava loved seeing - and hearing - the helicopter and also the ambulances and fire trucks in the parking lot. After it landed, we made a quick getaway to lunch at the Flipside.
