Baby Beez is TOTALLY into trucks and buses right now. Every time she sees one go by, she gets all excited and squeals and waves and goes “BEEP BEEP BEEP.” When a friend of mine posted on FaceBook about the JLP’s Touch a Truck event this weekend, I knew it was a “must do” for us.
I had heard about this event before, but didn’t realize how huge and fun it is! I always assumed that they just got one fire truck and let kids climb all over it. Sure, kids would love it, but I couldn’t be bothered to haul out to the Strip District on a busy Saturday just so Baby Beez could see a fire truck. Boy was I wrong, there were tons of different trucks there, all for the kids to climb in and on and around. There were a couple fire trucks of course, but also the Bomb Squad truck, a SWAT truck, a monster truck, the ATF truck, a Brinks truck, and a ton of other ones too.
What truck should I see next?
Mr. Beez and I had just as much fun (if not more) than our little one. It was especially cool to see the Bomb Squad truck and SWAT truck up close. Sure, it was PLENTY noisy, with all the kids honking the horns, but the JLP does provide ear plugs.
The JLP puts this event on annually, and it’s the perfect kind of event to entertain kids in a range of ages. Kids from age 1 to age 12 will all have a great time. Hope to see you next year!
