I hope you and yours had a fun Halloween!

It was my family’s first Halloween in our new neighborhood. Everything was going great. Plenty of decked out houses handing our candy. Kids were having a ball. Then we saw this fire engine rolling up the street. I told my kids to give them the old semi-truck-horn-arm-motion to see if the firefighters would give them a honk as they drove by.

They did! It was cool! Then, they stopped!

A firefighter got out with a bag of candy, and every ghoul and goblin within 100 yards sprinted to the truck! They gave out candy to everyone they could, took a few photos and drove off.

What a very cool, simple thing they did that kids and parents will remember for a long time.

Kudos to Plainfield FD! Just another reason it’s better in the ‘burbs!
