We Be JAMmin!

Some friends of ours asked us if we'd be interested in joining them at MONSTER JAM+pit passes! When we asked Jacob, he was SO excited, so of course we said YES! Here's some highlights from our experience last night :) Jacob is now totally obsessed with monster trucks and its what he's been playing with all morning! Ha!









Daddy and Jacob signing a car that will be destroyed during the show!










Can you tell he was happy to be there??! Ha



some highlights from the show...it was actually REALLY cool!





























During the "freestyle", they jump over everything! They crush those cars, fly through the air and try to get the highest score! Some trucks even flipped over and the crowd went NUTS! We were learning as we go, because none of us had ever been! Grave Digger is the superstar of this show, the kids scream when he comes out and most of the souvenirs have that truck on them.























Some things Jacob asked us at the show:
Can we come here again tomorrow?
Will one of these monster trucks come to my birthday party?
Can we buy a truck like that one?
When the show is over, will it start again??!
Oh my sweet boy! He sure enjoyed it!!!
and all morning he's been thanking us for taking him to something so COOL!


P.S. Thank you for all of the kind words about our LACK OF snow. We were very disappointed, but we survived. Our temps are back in the 60's and sunny, so I guess things could be worse. I'm not giving up hope just yet, there's still a chance we'll get some snow before winter is over,right??!

What a perfect time for Jacob! I have to say, your pictures look like toy trucks playing in a sandpit. It's hard to believe that these are actually huge trucks doing these stunts!

My boys LOVE monster trucks. The first year I bought tix to monster jam here in DM, I had pregnancy brain and remembered at about....oh....9:30 the evening of the show that we were supposed to be there! So we went to MN two weeks later so as not to disappoint our then 4 yr old. The next year we did make it to the DM show, but to much disappointment - the arena is so much smaller; one truck had been destroyed the night before so there were only 5, one of which got wrecked during the race portion of our show. So, only 4 trucks made it to our freestyle, and the stadium was so small they couldn't do much. So we will definitely only be seeing it at big arena's from now on!
