Last weekend we went to the ‘Touch a Truck’ event in a nearby town. I had SO much fun and I wasn’t even the one climbing in and out of the machines! (Okay, so I did get in a couple).
The event was a fundraiser where they parked a bunch of ‘mighty machines’ in the college parking lot and let the kids climb in them, on them, honk the horn… they had free reign. A loader, firetruck, skidsteer, police car, excavator, cement truck, garbage truck… even a zamboni!
The kids’ personalities came out that day … Oliver was timid at first, while Emery was the first one to climb in and start playing with the handles.
Now those are big tires! They even had a huge metal crusher there and had a demo where a loader loaded in old cars and crushed them… what could be cooler! They were hauling out the crushed cars while we were eating lunch.
