Monster Trucks….

February 16, 2014

I’ve been really busy. I haven’t had a lot of time to write here – and I don’t have a lot of time right now, so this will be quick.

We saw the Monster Jam monster truck show today. Yes, us. Yes, I know what you are thinking- sensory overload?  Um, yeah. BUT we did it. With smiles on all of our faces. The kids loved it. It’s amazing what those little noise-canceling ear muff things will do. And since Mary hated hers, of course, we just took the batteries out of her hearing aids- instant ear plugs.

Then the show started. It was loud. It was rowdy. And it was fun.

So at one point towards the end of the show, I got up for a minute to throw away our empty cups.  When I came back to my seat, someone else was sitting in it….

Yes, if you are a Monster Truck fan, you probably already know who that man is, sitting next to my little girl- Lee O’Donnell, the driver of the Iron Man truck (the red and gold truck pictured above, for those of us not so Monster Truck literate.)  Mary, who loved the show- I was actually pretty surprised with how intrigued she was by all of it- was totally cool with this guy hanging out with her. She even let him get a few pictures with her….

Of course, he had to make room for another of her fans….

Gary Porter, the driver of the Grave Digger Monster Truck. What can I say, Mary’s a popular girl. 😉

So a busy day, but a fun day.  Gotta run.  It’s a lot of work to keep these kids entertained in the winter, but we’re managing. 🙂
