If you have been following Mom Mart for a while you have probably heard me mention my extremely crafty sister-in law Wendy. She is by far one of the most creative people I know and she is a blast and a half to hang out with. This last weekend my SIL took my boys with her to see the pink fire trucks in Aurora Illinois and here is what she shared about her experience…

The Aurora Fire Department sponsored an event for breast cancer awareness Saturday Aug 25. Three pink fire trucks that travel the country were in Aurora for an event where all the proceeds went to our local community for breast cancer. The entire week leading up to the pink fire trucks the Aurora Firemen wore pink t-shirts to work!
My husband Shawn, William and Steven's Uncle Shawn, is a fireman/paramedic in Aurora. He was on shift Saturday and we were thankful he was going to be at the fire trucks at the time we would be there also. William got to climb inside and pretend to drive the fire truck! He also acquired a pink fire chief hat, and stuffed his face with popcorn.
We had fun supporting an important cause, and enjoyed the photo opp. My nephew's and little girl will be raised with many trips to the fire station and will know that their Uncle/Daddy is a real life hero. We love having family so close that mom could meet us downtown at the fire museum for these fun pictures.
