To this day I still enjoy a good ride on the scrambler or the snow express with the screaming music and would like Pookie and Munchie to have the opportunity to experience these too.
The first event I went to (Darcy was working) was Mighty Machines. I was so looking forward to seeing the girls get excited about pretending to drive all the trucks, diggers, dozers and tractors, (played it up in my mind pretty good) that when we got there and Sophia tried to walk on air to get back to the car and go home, I started to cry - the disappointment was too overwhelming. The horn honking was too loud and scared them both. Emmy did not want to get out of the stroller, let alone climb into a combine. I walked around for an hour trying to calm their fears and eventually they warmed up to taking their turn driving the garbage truck. The day ended up being not a total bust and Grandpa enjoyed the rollover demonstration.
