Touch a Truck

IMG_9982

On Saturday morning, we went to a fundraising event called Touch-A-Truck. LM was probably on the young side for the event - next year, he'll tear it up - but he still enjoyed himself and had fun exploring. Basically, this non-profit organization called "My Very Own Book" got local police and fire agencies and other entities to bring their vehicles to a mall parking lot, where you could buy a ticket to climb in and all over them. There was a city bus, a school bus, an ambulance that you could walk in, sit on the bed, and start the siren to, several firetrucks of different ages, limousines, a FedEx truck, lawn mowers, race cars, vintage cars, a garbage truck, dirt haulers, etc etc etc.

LM had a great time in the ambulance. I think it was maybe his favorite one, as well as the monster truck. He also liked the garbage truck and the fire trucks. The rest of them...I think he was maybe a little overwhelmed by all the stuff. He and S checked it all out, the weather was great, and it was a full little event to do with the boy.

A really nice older man owned this car. He was very sweet to the kids.

LM and S were color coded. LM got dressed first. I'm just sayin'.

I think Daddy had as much fun as the boy.

See you soon.
