For Leo's birthday we decided to build him a fire station. For the last two weeks Jack and I would sneak into the basement after putting Leo to bed, and work tirelessly on our creation. First Jack built the box, then we added trim and doors and a shiny silver pole. I kind of got obsessed with finding miniature accessories online.
Finally, his birthday arrived, and it was ready. When Jack got home from work we were going to wrap it in a large box, and let Leo tear it open! We couldn't wait to see the look on his face when he saw it!
About an hour before Jack got home, Leo was downstairs in the basement playing. Apparently he snuck his way into the storage room, because all of a sudden I head a sweet little voice say: "It's a FIRE STATION!"
I ran down the stairs and found him there, with his eyes wide, carefully examining the fire station.
I called Jack and said "I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that Leo found his fire station. The good news is that he loves it."
So I carried it upstairs, and Leo has loved playing with it. Our cute little fireman!
