We’ve kind of made this an annual family outing, I believe. This year, we were able to get half-price tickets through Groupon. (Unfortunately, they don’t offer half-price parking or food, ha!)
I think all of us enjoy checking things out, although it’s harder to really look at cars when you’re trying to keep your children contained at the same time! I thought I lost Alex while looking in the back of a Honda Odyssey, only to find out that he’d climbed into the drivers seat and shut the door!
Anyway, we enjoyed comparing family vehicles and looking at future work car options for Keith. The boys enjoyed playing in the cars, pretending to drive, and just plain had fun.
Max was THRILLED to be on Daddy’s shoulders. He wouldn’t hold still, but he was just beaming!
The Hyundai booth was giving out inflatable guitars. To get one, you had to go up on stage and pretend to be in the band. Alex said he’d do it, but then they were closing the line when we went up there. Alex’s face fell; he was so disappointed! I never do things like this, but I went around to the back, found the people who were inflating the guitars, and asked if there was any way they could make a little boy very happy…and they did!
Lightning McQueen and Mater (in the background) were at the State Farm booth! Alex slipped under the rope and touched McQueen before we could stop him! The picture is blurry…but he was one very happy boy!
