Touch a Truck & Touch a Chicken

Despite the few sprinkles of rain we had today, the kids and I headed to "Touch a Truck" with Nana, Mima, Aunt Dana, Nia, Nolan and the rest of the crew. I had never heard of "Touch a Truck" before but what a cute activity for kids! All of the town's city workers, bus drivers, farmers, etc. brought all their favorite equipment out today so that kids could climb and play in them for FREE!

The girls definitely had a good time playing together in all the trucks.

There were so many to choose from! They had Semis, a S.W.A.T. truck, a garbage truck, an ambulance, a fire truck, a school bus...

And the kids favorite...TRACTORS!

The kids definitely had the most fun playing in the tractors.

Well...except for Blake. He just wasn't feelin it today. Big shocker.

So he just hung on Mima and enjoyed a cookie and sucker.

BUT...when we left "Touch a Truck" and headed to Aunt Di and Uncle Adam's for a little visit, he was suddenly feelin tractors! I guess he just preferred to actually ride on one :-)

 And Addie was lucky enough to DRIVE one today! Uncle Adam let her get behind the wheel (with him controlling the gas of course) and she had a blast.


After her little tractor ride, can you guess what she wanted to do next?

Feed the chickens!! And boy did they come a runnin...

Although the chickens were pretty cute, I preferred my bird's eye view for the feeding. Ha!

And good old Blake kept his distance too by hanging on Nana. Smart boy :-) 

We all just couldn't get over Addie, the Chicken Whisperer. She had absolutely no fear with these guys!

And neither does her Uncle Adam.

I was able to catch a quick video of the little chicken lady in action. Please disregard all the conversations going on and my obnoxious voice. I just had to post this though because she is too cute :-)

As you can imagine, this is ALL we have talked about today, so we've already planned another trip to Aunt Di and Uncle Adam's house next week for a playdate with Addie's new chicken BFFs. I think Blake and I will just hang in the tractor :-)
