Chaska: Touch a Truck 2010

Grant ringing the bell

It was the annual Touch a Truck event in Chaska tonight, and my boys LOVED it.



Gray in the scoop

They had crafts, hot dogs, soda, lemonade, popcorn, inflatables, a kids’ band — all free. What a great community event!

Chaska Touch a Truck

Trucks? Just a few (firetrucks, police cars, heavy construction equipment, a zamboni, bus, mobile command station and more). So cool.

Gray Driving

Thanks to everyone who made it possible. We had a great time. And yes, I touched a truck myself. It was better than I ever thought it could be. More photos here.
