Back on February 15th, Nick and Ben went to a Monster Truck show with friends. I don't know how these pictures got lost in the shuffle, but they're fun to look at - so here they are!
This is Grave Digger, the infamous monster truck that has been around forever, as Nick has informed me. (I was a girly girl growing up and have no prior experience with such vehicles. ;-) Ben has a toy Grave Digger, and was very excited to see the real thing in action..."That's just like my toy, Daddy!!"
Ben and Gabe snacking and intently watching:
The gang (minus Nick):
Ben still talks about the show. Especially the trucks jumping and crushing cars and (Ben's favorite) a schoolbus.
Recently, after apprehending the little guy after dashing off into the parking lot without me, I was reprimanding him. I explained why it was unsafe to run away without me with all the cars moving around. As many of you know, Ben has trouble with attention, so I was trying to use something interesting to help him understand. I said, "Ben, when you run away from me, its not safe. Because those cars are a lot bigger than you. They could run you over like a monster truck!" He understood exactly what I meant, but unfortunately, failed to see this as a problem. He said (with much enthusiasm), "Ooooo! That car is like Grave Digger! And I gonna be like the school bus!! It gonna crush me like a bug!" Yeah, Ben. Not good. Yikes.
