We spent Saturday at this fun charity event, Touch-A-Truck.  It raised money for "My Own Book," helping kids less fortunate with the gift of books. 

If you know Knox you know he's obsessed with cars.  It was his first "real" word, and he is constantly pointing out cars and trucks everywhere we go.  I knew he would love this, and it did not disappoint.

Upon pulling into the parking lot he started freaking out.  He could see the school bus and fire engine and his head basically exploded.  He was twisting all over the place trying to get a view of the cars...too cute!  Our friends, the Lyons, came along and it was fun to see the boys together, enjoying manly things!

Once we got inside he took off.  First stop: 

This big daddy.  I think he liked the idea that it was so tall, but he wasn't impressed once inside.

He peaked a little early with his favorite, just the second car we saw.  The police car.

He didn't want to leave, but other kids needed a turn.  We sat the boys in the backseat and decided it was the last time we wanted to see them there.

We then had to go back up front so he could turn the siren on.  And off.  And on.  And off.  I had a headache about 15 minutes after we left.  Wonder why.

There were cars of all shapes and sizes.  Buses, fire engines, old cars, new cars, FedEx trucks, ambulances, farm tractors, and...Monte Carlo's.  He loved the bench seat.

Smart cars with suicide doors.  What a funny looking concept.

I thought he would like the fire engine.  He only liked the boots and helmet.

Then he saw the other kids pulling the trigger on the fire hose.  He had to have a turn.

He liked it, for about 15 seconds.

They also had a race car (or truck).  Knox thought it was McQueen for a split second.  Once he realized it was a phony he was on to the real car...

A limo.  He was not only a phone operator but a bartender.  The boys loved being able to walk around in the spacious car!

Then Dad got really excited.  The Ferrari made the show worthwhile for pops.

Knox didn't mind taking it for a spin...though Stephen and I were cautious of him standing on the seat.  I can't afford to clean the leather on that thing!

Our last stop was this 50's Chevy truck.  The owners did an awesome job of keeping it up.  It was a beauty!

I love this picture of his reflection!

 When we got home he promptly took a 3-hour nap.  I think it was just too much for him to handle!  I highly recommend any truck lovers out there to check it out next year!
