Today we got to take Luke to a local event that was the perfect event for a little boy, it was called simply, “Touch a Truck” which is exactly what our little car lover dreams about at night!
Luke was a little intimidated by the size of the vehicles. It actually took a little encouragement to get him to sit in the drivers seat. He was a little overwhelmed. I don’t think he’d see trucks this big up close before.
But he liked any time he saw levers or switches… fortunately they didn’t actually DO anything!
The Police car was a highlight, of course, and he even got to sit in the back seat, somewhere I explained he doesn’t want to get a ride in the future! I also was happy to learn that a laptop mount in the front is not illegal. Hmmmmm…
I think I even enjoyed getting to see a city snow plow up close and personal.
The fact that I could climb inside the plow tells you it is BIG!
And how often do you get to climb into the front containers of a garbage truck? Yes, they were very clean! (also pretty rare!)
Fire trucks are always a treat… though the sirens made him a little nervous. But I suppose that’s a good thing, they are supposed to alert people to danger.
Finally, Luke found one his size. And this isn’t a prop, it has a functioning engine, and in fact, was driven on the road to the event. (Granted a few blocks with police escort.)
I think the construction vehicles were Luke’s favorites. All boys wish they could operate one of these. (Big boys too!)
It was a perfect way to spend a beautiful Saturday morning. MANY THANKS TO MOM WHO TOOK THE PICTURES!
