Little Boys and Monster Trucks

Saturday, Feb. 26, Pops took Benji and Matthew to the Monster Truck Jam at the Richmond Coliseum. The boys had a blast (including the big boy)!  Benji and Matthew really like the Grave Digger as we pass its home in Kill Devil Hills, NC, every time we go to the Outer Banks. The Grave Digger won all four events on Saturday (racing, wheelies, donuts, and free style).

Before the show started the boys were able to go down to the Pit and meet the drivers.  They got all the drivers to autograph their program and, as you will see below, got their picture taken with each driver.

Here are some pics and there is a brief video at the end of this post.
