Mustard day!


The good

We drove a few hours up the Maine coast to an old fashioned fireman’s muster.

The temperature was cooler than it has been and it was a great day!

The fun

This is the old hand tub out of Marblehead, MA. 

They were what was used back in the olden days before there were automobiles.

Firemen would pump the water out by hand.

The goal these days is to pump hard enough that your water spurts out of the hose the furthest.

They are have officials who do the measuring.

Abby calls them mustard days instead of muster days which we all think is so cute!

The good, the fun, the random
