Well, this was a new experience. I’ve heard of Touch-A-Truck or truck petting events before, but we had never been to one – unless you count Food Trucks ‘n Fire Trucks last year, which I guess you can. A few weeks ago, when I was out of town, Steve had considered bringing Nugget to a Touch-A-Truck event in Buffalo, but the weather was nasty and he called off the outing. Fortunately, we got a do-over last weekend, and the whole family got to enjoy it together!
Touch-A-Truck is exactly what it sounds like – a free-for-all for truck-loving kids, who get to climb all over a selection of trucks, sit in the driver’s seats, honk the horns, and basically go nuts. We knew that Nugget, who loves trucks more than any baby I have ever seen, would have a ball. And that Peanut would probably tolerate it.
Less talk and more pictures. As you can see, Nugget was all about this. His little head was on a swivel and he was waving like a maniac and greeting all of the trucks.
Peanut had a pretty good time – there was a pink cement mixer that she thought was cool, and every kid loves fire trucks.
But really, this event was for Nugget. And he took every opportunity to live out his dreams.
While Peanut alternated between having a pretty good time and whimpering every time one of the trucks’ horns honked. Which was like every thirty seconds. Poor Peanut!
Nugget, weirdly, was not bothered at all by the horns. I know his hearing is fine, so he just loves trucks that much.
Waving to all of the trucks. Bye-bye trucks! Vroom!
Basically, it was the best day of his life.
Have you ever been to Touch-A-Truck?
