big truck day!

oh my goodness! we had so much fun this morning at the conestoga rec center for their annual big truck day! it is a free event, though we would have deffinatley paid to get in. Riley loves big trucks so he was thrilled! while we were waiting in
line to get in, we got to see the life flight helicopter circle us and then land. when we got to the registration tent riley was given a contruction hat which he loved! (because it was like daddys at work) we got to see and climb on ambulances, a helicopter, swat cars, tractors, construction trucks, firetrucks, a recycling truck, tri met bus, franz break truck that gave us a small loaf of bread, big semi trucks, odot with graders and plow, pge with bucket trucks, coca cola truck with big screen for playing guitar hero, 2 excursion limos, 2 monster trucks, and an old 1918 fire truck. all were open for climbing and horn honking (except for the old fire truck) . and there was lots of horn honking going on. lots of vendors for eating, a big pile of sand to play in. I think half of it came home with us! this is deffinatley something we will be doing again!

I guess you and your family have a great day of this big truck day. When i was i kid i used to imagine my self riding on a bucket trucks reaching the highest branches of the trees. In my age right now I am still wishing to have one since bucket trucks is very useful in many ways.
