What a wonderful day we had yesterday! I took my little boy to the local "Big Rig Day" which included the town's utility trucks, fire trucks, police cars, ambulance, tow-truck and construction vehicles. It was free to the community too.
I took a half day at work and picked Drew up from day care and headed to the park. Grammie was with us too, which I know she enjoyed watching Drew explore all the vehicles.
Once we got into the park, Drew couldn't take his eyes off all the big trucks. They were all lined up with other kids hoping in and out of the cabs, honking horns and having a wonderful time. He couldn't wait to get out of his stroller to explore.
We started off with the firetrucks and worked our way through everything. He loved sitting in all the driver seats, moving the steering wheel and pretending to drive. Drew also enjoyed sitting in the back seat of the Firetruck and looking all around. When he was placed in the back of the police card, I told him this is the only time I want to see him in the back of the police car. The officer laughed (I'm sure he was hearing that one all day).
After I brought Drew around to each vehicle, I let him pick and choose what he wanted to visit again. He kept going to the Firetrucks and the ambulance. He loved walking between those vehicles and checking out the entire rig.
I am so happy I took him this year. I can't wait until next year to do it again!!
