This is another photo filled post.  Nothing medical or otherwise to report except that we've been taking advantage of the great weather this week and spending every possible minute outside playing that we can because pretty soon, we'll be stuck indoors for awhile!  I'm not jinxing ourselves, so we're keeping mum about what's happening in less than two weeks :)

But I thought I'd share some more pictures of Stephen doing something fun.  Yesterday we went to a really cool event called Touch-A-Truck.  I had heard about events like this one from the moving company we used back in October.  When I took Stephen with me to pick up some boxes from the company's warehouse, one of the guys let Stephen see one of the trucks and then told me that they participate in a Touch-A-Truck event once a year where kids get to touch and climb on all sorts of trucks.  As luck would have it, I thought of it last week and started googling to see if I could find one in our area, and low and behold, there as one near us on Saturday at Robinson High School in Fairfax!! And I knew it would be a big hit since Stephen can't get enough of trucks right now!

He was a little more timid and scared than I thought he would be, but we still had lots of fun and even though he didn't actually climb into any of the trucks (we attempted the fire truck and it didn't go so well) he did touch all of them.  His favorite part, hands down, was sliding down the bed of the flatbed tow truck.  What an awesome idea and all of the kids loved it!! Mine and Bill's favorite part was watching the helicopter swoop in and land in the parking lot.  It was a great event and a big shout out to the Fairfax County police and fire department for being a part of it!!
