(Faux) G'pa Scott & G'ma Pam gave us tickets to the auto show! So after church on a Sunday, we borrowed Cooper's friend, Ethan, and went to check it out.
We grabbed a quick lunch at Qdoba...where kids eat free on the weekends. :)
Once at the auto show we saw lot of, yes... cars.
The boys thought it was great they could touch and even get inside.
Miles found his favorite quickly.
He is saving his money to buy this 'blue race car' as soon as he can drive.
The bigger boys checked out the engines.
And I heard them discussing which transformer this car looked like.
Then they took turns 'driving' each other around.
I'm fairly positive this is what my mind's eye will see in 10 years when they're asking to drive somewhere. And I'll probably even be imagining that one of them will need to grab the owner's manual (as Cooper is here) to figure out how to drive.... :-/
They also climbed around in some pick up trucks.
And jumped in a bounce house.
We stalked Captain America...
And finally got a photo with him.
There was face painting too.
This lady was so great and did Cooper and Ethan's at the same time.
While Miles was in the chair next to them.
After the big reveal...
We had two tigers and a spider!
The lady doing Miles' paint laughed when he clearly stated he didn't want to look like spiderman, he wanted a spider face. And then she did just what he wanted!
These tiger faces were fun...
And their lady told them they'd probably have to shave their chin whiskers in the morning.
We saw some army recruiters who let the boys check out the hummer.
And even crawl around inside.
On our way out we saw a very tall man.
Who, once we caught up, lifted Cooper up!
I might have been slightly terrified at first, but as you can tell, regained my composure and took a picture. Although it doesn't take much composure for me to do the thing that comes most natural to me in these situations! :)
Our one and only attempt at a group photo as we left... it will do. Ha.
Then it was time to drop Ethan at his house on our way home.
Miles didn't personally witness that... or much of the drive home.
We had a great time! Thanks, Scott & Pam!
