Monster Jam!

We went to a Monster Truck Rally last Saturday night in Mobile, Alabama.   Keenan (and I) especially had been looking forward to it! =)

We ended up only seeing half of it, and leaving at intermission because someone (Keenan) hadn't napped and ended up taking his ear plugs out, getting a headache and Very, very cranky and just wanted to leave.

Here are the pictures:

Waiting in line to get in

We got (free) tickets to the "Pit Party" before the show, so we were able to be down on the floor and see the trucks and drivers up close.

Yup, that's a big truck

This was the only truck we actually stood in line to have our picture taken with

Me with one of the gigantic tires on El Matador

El Toro Loco 

This was my favorite because it was almost "cute!"
Monster Mutt (driven by a woman!)

Grinder again

The famous, Grave Digger (celebrating 30 years)
I really don't like this one, it's too creepy

King Krunch

El Matador again

Right before the show

All the drivers

Sweet vertical action from El Matador

Good jump from King Krunch

Caleb, surprisingly, seemed to really like it!

With my ear plugs in =)

These cars have seen better days

Grave Digger in the air


Here's a short video clip of one of the races

So, the evening got cut shorter than we had planned, which was a bummer, but we had a great time while we were there!   I was totally unprepared (we Did all have ear plugs) for just how LOUD it would be!

Moriah, to our surprise, LOVED it!  =)   Funny kid.  

Monster Jam.   Another thing to check off the list (and maybe do again without kids so we can see the whole show) =)

Those are HUGE trucks. I loved Keenan's t-shirt too! I guess the apple doesn't fall far from the tree (re: Moriah loving the monster truck jam). ha ha
