Last Friday we went to a nearby Touch a Truck event, where kids of all ages can get up close and personal with fire trucks, school buses, utility vehicles and other equipment that is usually off limits. The size and sound was a little overwhelming for Edith -- she was mainly just interested in the stand-alone train ride. "Edith's turn!" she exclaimed when the train came into sight. We rode it -- and Edith got some coloring books and a pink plastic hardhat, so the day wasn't a total loss.
