Monster Truck Rally

Collin with his earplugs in
Well, here they are finally, our monster truck pics. We had so much fun and it was a good distraction considering what our family has been through recently. The night started out with the timed monster truck races. Then a whole line of locals and amateurs tried their luck on the jumps. Only one got big air and you can see him on the video. He had to be hauled out on a board because his back hurt but he was okay. Gutsy though. Next came the motorbikes. I looooved watching their stunts. They weren't out for long but it was the highlight of the trip for me. They did some more monster truck racing and T-Maxx took the prize. The last event was the freestyle. It was time to smash some metal! The first truck out lost his wheel, another one tipped on his side, and others smashed, jumped and spinned for the judges. Collin was so excited he could barely contain himself. (Trust me, I've got a bruise on my knee from his excitement.) We didn't get out of there until 11:00 that night but we thought it was worth it. It's not something we get to do very often and I'm sure Collin will remember it for a long time.

Nice jump *** My favorite-the Cadillac monster truck

Collin loved it when they hooked up a chain to get this monster truck back up

Giving out rides (wish we were on there!)***Rock on!

The motorbikes were the best for me!

The amateurs were funny but it got a little long...bring out the pros!

Who was Collin's favorite monster truck? Bigfoot!
Here's a little bit of the fun that night:
