There was a field trip for William's YMCA class today, and we went to a fire station.
In the station, there was a kitchen where the fire fighters could cook and eat meals, and an exercise room to work out.
消防車には2種類あって，普通に消防車と呼ばれるものはfire engine，はしご付きの消防車はfire truckと言います。Fire truckは水が積まれていないけど，fire engineには500ガロン（約1,892リットル）の水が積まれているそうです。どちらの消防車ともにいろんなツールが積み込まれていました。
I didn't know the difference between fire engines and fire trucks, but we learned that fire trucks have long ladders and don't carry water. Fire engines don't have ladders but carry 500 gallons of water.
The whole gear the fire fighters have to wear weighs about 75 lbs. (*_*)
At the end, we took pictures with some of the fire fighters in front of one of the engines. Thank you for all you do fire fighters!
So, I made basil pesto gnocchi for dinner last night and tonight. I was originally planning on making basil pesto from scratch, but it was a lot of work, so I just bought the pesto, but I made gnocchi. It was good, but very filling, and eating them two nights in a row was too much for me.
