Fire Truck, Guys and Ice Cream

Uncle Drew (a.k.a. Firefighter Feste) took us to his fire station for a tour. Cullen was really excited to go see the fire truck. However, when we arrived, the fire truck was out on a call. Within 5 minutes, the garage door opened and the giant truck with flashing lights came roaring into the station. It came to a halt and 6 guys jumped off the truck and took off their jackets and boots. I think the whole scene was a bit intimating to a little 27 lb. boy. Caption Jimmy told Drew to sit up in the driver seat with Cullen, but when it came time for Cullen to climb in, he started crying. Cullen appreciated the big rig, but only wanted to look from a distance. Then Dirk tried to climb into the cab and Cullen yelled "No Dodo, No Dodo" - as if the fire truck was going to eat his dad. Finally, he warmed up to the whole situation after Captain Jimmy offered an ice cream bar. When we got back to Grandma and Grandpa's, they asked Cullen what he saw at the fire station and he said "fire truck". Then we asked what else and he replied "guys and ice cream."
