Its nothing short of unexpected that if there is a 2nd alarm fire in town that it will make the front page of the paper. Press Photographers line up the perimeter of the hose lines snapping photos of the firefighting action in hopes of capturing a great shot in time to make the morning papers.
And where am I during these great photographing opportunities? Why see for yourself...
That's me in the bottom left hand corner of the screen! I am snapping photos inside the fire scene perimeter, yet safely away from any danger, thanks to the Chief's blessing. If you look closely you'll also see that my husband is operating the turn table on top of the ladder while talking to another firefighter on the ground.
Not only is this the first fire scene photo appearing on the front page of the paper that I've been in, but it also happens to be the first fire scene photo that both Shawn and I are in together! Granted I am not dressed in fire gear this time, but rather a skimpy summer outfit since were relaxing at a friends BBQ when the tones went off for the fire.
As silly as it sounds I am saving this photo for the baby book. Part of it will be about all the adventures her and I went on even before she was born. I want her to see that her and her momma did some pretty darned cool stuff and hope that we can keep adding to the adventures once she's here!
