Summer, summer, summertime. My favorite time of the year! Well that’s until Christmas rolls around. But summer does have a slight leg up because it’s warm. One of my favorite things about summer is trying new activities with the kids. One of the activities that we got to try a few years ago was Monster Jam.
Many times when the kids try a activity for the first time, it’s mine as well. Being a transplant of a Caribbean island means that recreation and entertainment is not as diverse in terms of things to do. Things like ice skating rinks, amusement parks and monster truck shows were just not available. I grew up often wondering what life “in the states” would be like.
Besides school, growing up I went to the beach, church and the movies on repeat.
So anytime there is something fun, exciting and family themed, I’m there and the kids are right there with me. I’m a grown kid stuck in a cute “life after 40” body. And I’m not complaining either. Life is good in this body.
Speaking of monster trucks, Monster Jam is coming to Hagerstown, Maryland. The show will take place at the Hagerstown Speedway from July 26-28th.
My family and I attended a Monster Jam a few years ago and my daughter still talks about it. My son, is too young to remember but, I recall that he was fascinated and alarmed all at the same time.
It was just the right mix of both. He was three years old at the time. Now, that he’s six, I think he’ll appreciate events like Monster Jam even more. At this point, he studies cars and trucks like it’s his full-time job.
Of course if you’re planning to taking your family to Monster Jam, bring some air plugs. You may even want to buy some noise cancelling headphones.
Surprisingly, they’re really affordable.
As cooling centers open around the United States to protect people from the record breaking heat, reports state that at least 29 states including the District of Columbia will be impacted.
During times like these it’s best to stay indoors and or opt for fun evening summer activities instead.
Attending Monster Jam is a great evening activity to break up the monotony of attending the same summer activities time and time again.
