This actually worked out better. First because both of Grant's favorite trucks were in one location AND there wasn't a huge crowd so we were able to get really close and even sit Grant on one of Grave Digger's wheels. He loved it - and it was a surprise...even better :)
So on Saturday we went to the actual Monster Jam show. Last year we were only able to stay for about half of it. And we were expecting about the same this year. Just because he's older doesn't mean the trucks were any quieter!
First they did a wheelie competition.
|That's Maximum Destruction...he won.|

|And lets not forget Grave Digger!|
|Grave Digger won freestyle!|
So the best part was that we got to stay for the whole thing. The whole thing! I was so proud of Grant. He did sit in one of our laps for the whole show...a little because he was scared and a little because he just couldn't see well from his own seat. But he wasn't scared and I think he really enjoyed the show. When we left he told us "That was really fun!"
