The City of Wyoming Public Works department had its open house today. It was a pretty simple affair for the most part. The kids got to climb into a police car as well as see various other city vehicles up close. It turns out the back see of a police car is hard plastic. Not exactly surprising but something that never occurred to me. There were a few handouts, ballons, etc. They even grilled hot dogs so the kids got to eat inside the building while oggling the equipment. However, the big hit was the back hoe. The line was pretty long and got longer as we waited. However, the kids did good waiting and seemed to enjoy watching the equipment run. They had it setup so that the kids take a turn at operating it a little bit. Henry and Samantha both really enjoyed it. In fact, based on her attempts at digging up the parking lot, Sammy may have found her calling. She just needs a pink hard hat and she's all set.
