For this week's "Talk About Tuesday" I'm talking about trucks! There has been a lot of fluff talk around here lately and not enough truck talk. (Re-read my journal title if you need a refresher.) We went to our town's "Touch a Truck" event this weekend--and the adjacent Farmers Market joined in with "Touch a Tractor". Needless to say, Handsome was in his element and Princess was pretty pleased too!
The gravel company gave out plastic hard hats (flimsy ones--but very neat nonetheless!) and they were a huge hit! Makes a nice change from our stash of plastic fire hats. We have so many fire hats since we stalk the fire truck every time it makes an appearance.
Princess is about 47 inches tall (probably a bit taller because it has been awhile since she was measured) and this tractor tire was taller than she was!
We had to pry Handsome away from the tractors.
Overall it was a great way to spend some time on a Saturday! We saw tractors, a fire truck, police SUV, school bus, city bus, cement mixer, dump truck, dive boat, a pump truck, and probably something else that I'm forgetting. I love free events like this for children.
