We took the boys to a local "touch a truck" event on Saturday. They were a little overwhelmed at first by all of the people, honking horns, and sirens, but eventually, they decided it was pretty cool!
They got to explore emergency vehicles, waste management trucks, monster trucks, a giant department of homeland security bus, and farm and construction equipment! We didn't make it to the helicopter, but we did get to watch it take off. :)

I don't know if it's the same for all little boys, but ours absolutely love trucks (and really anything that goes)! It was fun to do something geared -no pun intended- perfectly for them! They hear "no" a lot and Lance and I have to say "no" a lot, so we all love an opportunity to just let them explore freely for a change!
