Advance Auto Parts Monster Jam: Philadelphia 2012

Any mom can probably relate, than when you see you kids get so excited for something, you can't help but get excited too. For me, Monster Jam is one of those things.  Monster Jam only stops in Philadelphia once a year, and for the second year in a row, my family had a blast at the event! It was loud, dirty. and exciting. It was everything we expected and more. Here are some of the photos from the Philadelphia Monster Jam event that we went to at Lincoln Financial Field. 

We started the evening at Party in the Pits. This gave the boys a chance to get up close to all of the Monster Trucks and get join in the pre-event festivities.

The boys had a chance to sign a car and wheel that were going to be used in an upcoming show.

Oh yeah... I left my mark too!

If you've never been to a Monster Jam show and don't understand why hundreds of thousands of people go, this picture is one reason why. These trucks are amazing! They fly high through the air. They crash. Sometimes, they flip and catch on fire. Once the trucks start moving, there is never a dull moment.

The Monster Jam team really knows how to keep the excitement alive throughout the entire show. But, for me, all I had to do what take one look at my 6 year old cheering on the trucks with his hands high in the air, and I was happy. 

Isn't it funny how seeing the world through your child's eyes can change your view... even with something like monster trucks?  What's the one thing you never expected to enjoy until you had kids?
