Touch a Truck

We went to a Touch a Truck event yesterday and both Emma and Josh loved it! Josh knew every single truck there (even things like a trencher and a grader) and Emma was excited to see the trucks, too. We spent awhile walking around and taking pictures in the trucks. When they were done with that, they got to play in a huge pile of sand that was set up there- they were in heaven!

and a tractor!

They had a steam roller crushing cans

One of the malls near us brought in two characters from the Disney Show "Octonauts" so we decided to take Emma and Josh to check it out. They love watching the show so we figured they would like seeing the characters, too. We got to do a craft and then watch them perform, it was a fun time!

Memphis Kiddie Park

We have a place by us called "Memphis Kiddie Park" Its been around for over 60 years and they have rides geared towards younger kids. We thought Emma and Josh were at a good age to try it out and we were right! Emma went on 5 rides (Josh didn't want to go on the boats- he said they were too slow for him) and they both agreed that their favorite ride was the Ferris wheel. They also showed no apprehension before they went on the roller coaster, even though I was nervous for them. We had a fun time and look forward to going back soon!
