Touch A Truck?

How about screaming bloody murder and running the opposite direction…

This will have been little dude’s 3rd “Touch a Truck” event this year…but unfortunately today’s fun-capade turned a little nightmarish after only 45 minutes.

All was well with the world until a child honked the cement truck horn right as we were passing in front of it [insert screaming toddler here]. Scared the piss out of me too, lol, but no tears from this mama.

At least we got to see, sit and touch all of the vehicles before the baby poop hit the fan, lol. Fire truck, police SUV and ATV, humongous tow truck, helicopter, cherry picker, tree dozer, drilling truck, and a couple of others too. Little man also got a sweet little treat bag with a balloon, new toy truck, motorcycle, stickers and finger-paint.

All in all, despite our little “incident” we both had a great time.

Goodbye, Baby Girl

Dakota 1999-2013

I said goodbye to my best friend tonight. Without a doubt, the most difficult, heart wrenching thing I’ve ever had to do. I didn’t want her to be scared, so I stayed with my baby girl, holding her head in my arms and she drifted away to a warm, peaceful place and whispered in her […]
