TOUCH A TRUCK

Kenny was at market all last week and finally gets home tonight! We managed to make it through this market unscathed. Probably one of our best markets and quickest to date. We even made it through the weekend well for the most part. On Friday afternoon we picked Elle up from school and went to get milkshakes.  I even let Walker get one which was brave. He loved it of course! Then we came home and watched Enchanted. It is a cute movie and Elle we have watched it three times this weekend alone. She loves its!

Saturday morning we had plans to meet our friends Liza and her three kids, Shelby, Annie and Clark at Touch A Truck. I was so excited that Walker was old enough to take to Touch a Truck this year because I think it is such a fun idea for little kids and especially for little boys like Walker who loves trucks, buses, bulldozers and tractors and all other things truck related. When we first woke up the weather looked questionable but it blew over and it turned out to be a warm morning with a good breeze.

I will say that the excursion ended up being a little bit of a let down. Elle was cranky because she had stayed out late with a friend the night before and the Chick Fil A cow was standing right there when we bought our tickets and Walker did not like him and was also a little unsure of all the people so he would not let me put him down. He did not want to touch a truck. He did not want to climb in a truck. He did not want to do anything but let me hold him. And Elle wasn't too gung ho either.  We did a couple of things like got on the school bus and the city trolley before we used our tickets and got hotdogs and chips and sat in the shade and the kids kicked around a soccer ball. That kind of set the reset button and we did manage to enjoy a few of the trucks and things before leaving because it was horn honking time and horn honking time is crazy annoying and loud. That is why we made a point to go during the honk free time period.

Shelby was so sweet with Walker and was almost fully responsible in getting 
Walker to get on or near some of the trucks.

Climbing into the truck. I am not even sure what kind of truck this was.
All smiles.



The school bus was probably the most popular with our crew!

While it wasn't the exciting outing with the kids I had hoped for, we turned it around in the end 
and I am so grateful for the morning with them.
