Come follow, follow us to … Touch a Truck Day

Touch a Truck, Fishers Indiana 2014 |
I‘m so happy to introduce a new series here on the blog, all about our family field trips and adventures: Come Follow, Follow. Do you recognize one of the littlest Fleck’s favorite songs?

Last week we attended Community Day at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Today the kids and I wanted to share with you our recent trip to Touch a Truck in Fishers, Indiana.

The idea behind this special day is a simple one: let kids get up close with the police cars, fire trucks, diggers, mowers, dump trucks and other vehicles they love plus give them a chance to talk to the men and women who do the jobs that go along with those vehicles.

As my kids have been big truck fans from way back (every Wednesday you can find them with noses against the window waiting for the garbage truck to come down our street) and since my son has been telling us for about three years now that he’s going to be a policeman when he grows up, we knew this was a must do for our family.

We loaded up the kids and Aunt Angela and we headed out for some cool vehicle adventure! So in today’s post, the kids and I invite you to come follow, follow, follow us to … Touch a Truck!

First things first, we had to procure a snack.  The event we attended in Fishers, Indiana had free popcorn and water, which was just perfect.  As you can see in the top photo, my two year old Amelia found the perfect spot to sit and eat her popcorn.

Then, it was on to the trucks and cars!

We will be keeping our eyes peeled for more of these fun events and I’d encourage you to look for an event in your area, too.

Local Indiana folks, Katy of Indy With Kids has a comprehensive list of Touch a Truck events for this summer if you’re looking to check one or two out with your little ones.

Have you and your kids ever attended a Touch a Truck day or a similar event? What did they think?

Stay tuned next week to see where the kids and I go for our next adventure! Hint: this time it is not going to involve cars, but something more green and yummy!
