We went to Barrington's Big Trucks event on Saturday. Since we've been to a variety of touch a truck events, we kind of expected more. They had a variety of trucks but not entirely impressive ones! They had more trucks than construction equipment which is what N2 love. They had a school bus, a tow truck, a garbage truck, a moving truck, a fire truck, a front end loader, a snow plow, an ATV, police SUV, a street cleaner and a few other things. The also had a big wheel race (really it was just a spot where you could ride big wheels and get a prize). They had an inflatable slide which Natalie liked the first few times and then it go too hot for her. They were also handing out free cupcakes. The Walter E Smithe truck driver (who is the father of one of my students from last year) had pinatas so kids could hit the pinata.
Here's Noah the cool school bus driver and Natalie as a school bus driver. They really liked sitting in various seats.
Here they are in their big wheel race. The got lego cars as a prize.
Natalie's favorite thing was to get in trucks and honk the horn. She would lean against the steering wheel with her whole torso and lay on the horn.
