Big Truck Days

The town of Herndon has an event each year called "Big Truck Days." I knew when I saw the ad in the paper that it would be love at first sight. After driving around for nearly 30 minutes looking for a parking place and realizing that I was speaking along with Elmo's World ("Now it's your turn, Hassan....") in my angry voice, I illegally parked in a loading zone. I knew it would rain soon, so we would be able to beat the tow truck if the jerks at the public works building decided to tow a poor mother of twins. I didn't consider that we WERE at the public works building which has an endless supply of tow trucks. Alas, we weren't towed. But we did get rained on. But it was all worth it.

Owen saying, "Is Henry done yet? I'll just sit here and wait by this big rock."

Oh, and yesterday. We perfected our skill of climbing onto the chair together to watch - what else? - Elmo's World. La la la la!

What a fun day for little boys. Couldn't have been better - well except the rain of course. Glad you didn't get towed.

The wife and I go to a county fair every summer and one of the highlights for us and the kids is climbing all over the giant tractors, combines etc. Way too much fun.

What an awesome festival!! S & O LOVE big trucks. Since there is construction going on behind our house, they spend a big part of the day just looking out the window at the tractors and cement trucks!!
