A fun weekend with Uncle Chris: Part 2

As you read in our previous blog post, Noah had an AWESOME time with Uncle Chris when he visited a few weeks ago…and we still have a few more stories to tell!

Our next adventure during Chris’ visit was going to a Truck Touch event down the road in Alexandria. If you’re a frequent reader of this blog, you know that Noah LOVES these events! The city brought in a lot of their vehicles (primarily BIG trucks) for the kids to sit in, honk the horn, flash the lights, and turn on the sirens. Who wouldn’t love that?

Noah’s favorite trucks were definitely the two fire trucks – shocker! He saw a fire engine and a tiller ladder truck. Noah sat in and “steered” the ladder truck…and he (and Ryan!) got to climb into the cab at the back. Yeah, the ladder truck was the big kid’s favorite truck too!

Other emergency vehicles included an ambulance and a sheriff’s truck…and we heard the sirens for both!

Noah, Ryan and Chris also explored a school bus, DASH city bus and backhoe – so cool!

The Truck Touch was a lot of fun, especially since Uncle Chris was with us. It was HOT, HOT, HOT that day though, so our next stop was the pool in our complex. That felt good!

We had a busy weekend with Uncle Chris (lots to see and do!), but we definitely fit in time to just hang out in the backyard too.

What a great weekend! Noah had a blast. Come back again soon, Uncle Chris!

    Are there long waits to get on all the rides?
