Monster Jam!!!

When I heard Monster Jam was coming to Memphis I knew that Dylan would love this! Plus what kind of southerners would we be if we missed this kind of event? I really wanted to go but I stayed home with Jaxson instead. I figured this event wouldn't be enjoyable with a one year old baby! Plus these things get so loud that you need ear plugs. Nick and Dylan came prepared with some thanks to a friend's warning. Well, as predicted Dylan had a blast. His favorite monster truck was Grave Digger. He couldn't stop talking about this when he came home that night. A couple of the other oral surgery residents took their kids, so it was even more fun for Dylan to see his friends there. Nick got there an hour early so he could go down in the pit. That's when you can get pictures with the trucks and meet the drivers. Nick said that was really cool. If Monster Jam comes back to Memphis I am so going! I don't know if that is kind of weird that I would want to go, but I have never been to anything like that so it would be an experience. Fun times here in Memphis!

here's a freak-you-out story: my sister just went to a monster jam in washington last week, and a little boy was KILLED by a piece of one of the trucks that flew up into the audience, hit the boy in the head, and that was the end of him...how do you like them apples? i know, it's a horrible story, but i had to tell since it was so recent!
