We're super excited to have a new blogger joining us at GoMomGo! Megan Defferding's posts, called Happy Adventuring, will be a mix of fun things she & her kiddos do in & around Eugene & also some awesome things that they do when they stay at home. We'll tell you more about her soon but trust us, you're going to love her!
Here's Megan's first post about Jerry's Fire Safety Event...
Last weekend was Jerry's Fire Safety event. Jerry's is a local, employee-owned Lane County bastion of all things home improvement related. Since October is fire prevention month, every year Jerry's hosts a big, family friendly event, usually on the first Saturday of October.
Keep your eyes open for it next year - it's not advertised super well - I usually just see it on their reader board in front of their store. (and we'll keep you up to date on GoMomGo, too!)
They bring in all sorts of rescue vehicles - an ambulance, two fire trucks, a helicopter, a rural rescue truck, a rescue boat, and a vintage fire truck. They are all open and the kids can climb inside.
We spent a little over two hours checking everything out, and we could have stayed longer if a serious case of toddler hangriness hadn't taken over. There is a bounce house and a bounce slide, as well as some tunnels for smaller kids to climb through. You can try on a fire fighter's uniform, watch a puppet show, spray a fire hose, practice climbing out of windows, and watch a car being cut open with the jaws of life. It's all very impressive and fun.
