It's no secret, Brody has an obsession with monster trucks... and garbage trucks, air planes, and motorcycles. Typical boy. So whenever I got an email a few months ago saying that "Monster Jam is coming to Pensacola!" I told Ben we just had to go!
Brody is also obsessed with watching videos on Youtube. He goes through different phases but it is always the same ones. We have seen every single garbage truck ever made, Spy Kids in German, and Monster Jam tributes to Grave Digger at least 100 times this week.
So yesterday we made the hour long trek to Pensacola to see Grave Digger himself. Which by the way, we sat right next to where he was parked whenever he wasn't driving! Brody was stoked.
Backdraft in action!
I wish I had gotten more pictures of the trucks "in-action" but it was crazy loud and I was covering Brody's ears anytime the trucks were going. There was an intermission and I tried to go find some earmuffs that they were selling but I couldn't find any. But we did end up with some cotton candy and a grave digger toy!
We will be going to more Monster Jam shows in the future but I will make sure we bring some ear plugs! And I really want to go see it at a bigger arena. The Pensacola Civic Center is a little small for something like this, and I feel like the trucks were limited as to what "tricks" they could do.
We ended up going to see some friends that were in town in Crestview after the show and Brody was out before we even hit the interstate!
Definitely a successful day!
