Day 54/365 My little slice of redneck heaven
OK, obviously this is not from today. I've been trying to edit Monster Jam pictures today, and so here is my pic for the day. I promise I will try to get back to actually shooting every day tomorrow.
I love, love, love Monster Jam!
The big, tough, masculine trucks, the sound of the engines as it thunders through the Edward Jones Dome, the smell of burning fuel, the gimmicks that the different trucks have to entertain the people...it's all extremely exciting to me!
My favorite truck is Grave Digger and each year, I proudly sport my Grave Digger shirt, put streaks of neon green in my hair and head out with my kiddos dressed up in their favorite truck attire. We always eat at Bandana's BBQ and then head over to the pit party. We head around and look at the trucks, take some pictures and buy our souvenirs. Afterwards we head to our seat, get the cotton candy, soda, nachos, etc. and get ready to rumble!
I end up screaming through most of the show. I'm not so excited for the racing, but when those suckers tear up everything, I flip out! Wooo hooo!!!
Afterwards we usually get stuck in a parking lot for a long, long time while waiting for everybody to pile out. Then, it's customary for me to wait up until midnight to buy the tickets for the next year. Good times.
