Our old friends, the Whaley family, invited us to attend Monster Jam with them yesterday. Since we both have all boys, it seemed like a safe bet that the kids would like it. They’ve actually been to a monster truck show or two before.

I remember monster trucks from when I was a kid. Bigfoot appears to have disappeared, but Grave Digger is still around, along with a bunch of others like Monster Mutt and one sponsored by the Air Force named, Afterburner. There was even a local truck from West Jordan that did pretty well too. We had a fun time walking around the pits before the show, watching the big trucks do their jumping, racing, and freestyle contests, and seeing the motor-cross jumpers defy death on their 60 foot jump.

Micah insisted on taking all the pictures. I sorted through and found the best, and cropped them in close. He did pretty well:

We got the pit pass and got to go down on the floor before the show and see the trucks up close.  This is Monster Mutt, complete with floppy ears and tail … See my Tabblo>

Don’t worry, Ily and I went on a date (without the boys) for Valentine’s Day afterwards.
