Touch a Truck

In my hometown of Alpharetta, the have an annual “Touch a Truck” where they have lots of different vehicles, trucks, vans, etc. at a park.  The admission is free and your children are able to climb all over lots of fun equipment.  It was held a couple of weekends ago, so we decided to take our little ones down there.  The kids had a blast!  There was so much to look at.  Gavin was a little overwhelmed at first, but he warmed up to everything soon.

We had a great morning – the weather was so pleasant which was a very nice change from the sweltering heat that we had been having.  It was also just nice spending some time together as a family.  With our crazy schedules it can be pretty hard to have these moments where we are all together.   I am so grateful for these opportunities.
