Monster Trucks on the Beach

On Mother’s Day we went up to the oceanfront for Monster Trucks on the Beach. It was so much fun. Last time we were there Carsyn was in my belly! This time Carsyn was out of my belly and was able to enjoy watching the show. Dustyn is a lot older so I think he liked the show a lot more.

Kenny was so excited because Big Foot was there. He LOVED monster trucks growing up, especially Big Foot. Since they are more midwest Kenny was never able to see the truck in person until this past Sunday. His eyes lit up when he saw it and heard that his favorite driver was driving it.

It really was an awesome show. They did motocross freestyle instead of the quad wars. I loved it so much more. The quad wars got to be boring because it was always just a “show” and was set up. We had the perfect seats for the motorcross jump. I was able to capture some great silhouettes of their tricks.

I think we will be going again next year. I really want to get a balcony room in one of the hotels. That way we can just watch it from the balcony. Would be a nice little vacation too.

All these photos were taken with my Samsung Note 2. I seriously love the camera on my phone. So nice to just grab photos with it instead of lugging around my big girl camera.

By the way if you missed my post earlier I did a tutorial on how to make your own backdrop stand.


Carsyn’s birthday was Saturday so keep an eye out on my blog. I will be posting all about his party soon!

What did you do this past weekend? I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day!
