Uncle Q is so Cool!
One of the highlights of the trip was visiting Uncle Q at the fire station. He is a firefighter with the San Jose fire department and we got an amazing hands-on tour. We rode in the fire engine. I got to sit in the front! The kids tried on all the crazy heavy gear. The complete gear, after jacket, helmet, boots, etc., weighs approx 80 pounds. The kids each got to squirt water and Wes and Zach enjoyed knocking down the plastic patio set. It was Q's idea, honest. Quentin really is amazing with kids and my kids think he is just awesome! He even considers himself a jungle gym. Kids flock to him.
We really enjoyed our visit to Q and Shelly's and baby Boyd's. They are such a cute family.
