Looking through the eyes of children

On Friday morning, the fire alarms went off at work and "evacuate the building" rang out loud and clear.

So off we went and assembled on the other side of the road as we are instructed to. 

Luckily it was nothing serious, probably someone left the toast burning and that set off the sensitive alarms.

Usually we're busy chatting and notice very little of what's happening around us but that day we were in front of a childcare centre and the little kids were peeping through the glass window with amazement and wonder and so much glee. They were so thrilled to see the fire engines.

And so I took a closer look too for the first time and took some pictures.

So here are the pics of the fire engines that the kids found so "attractive" :

In looking at the engines, I took more notice of something we often take for granted. I was also grateful that we have these services that help us in our time of need and save lives. I was actually quite fascinated with all the equipment they carry.

Fire engines are attractive. We should learn to look at things through the eyes of children. The look on their faces when they saw the engines was priceless.

Like my facebook page  Suzy's Ilation and if one of your posts needs some tlc, add it to the goodwill thread there so I can drop by and give it some love.

  1. That's awesome! It's wonderful when we can see daily things through a different set of eyes.

    1. Thanks Traci. And seeing things through the eyes of children is refreshing.

  2. Hi Suzy ~~ I am glad the children got to watch those fire trucks and the fire fighters in action. I am glad too there wasn't a big fire for this run. We all like fire engines I think, at least I always have.

    Thank you for peeking in on my dog. Yesterday I ate another dog pill. I had already swallowed it when it was time for the next pill.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving,
    Jim and Mrs. Jim

    1. Thanks Jim. I think now and then, the child in us surfaces. Hope you had a happy thanksgiving.
