Touch A Truck Opelika 2012

Opelika is so family friendly. No, it isn’t the town in which we live – that one is just next door. Don’t get me wrong, Auburn is wonderful – just doesn’t offer as much for children as does Opelika.

Touch A Truck is a Saturday morning, one time a year, event. Trucks, police cars, police vehicles, fire trucks, monster trucks, school buses, you name it – whatever the big truck, it was there. Including a helicopter. The helicopter flew in and landed while onlookers waited. It was WINDY but very cool.

We ran into Troy’s friend Tate who (sadly) will be moving this summer. Tate’s mom and I were pen pals (before computers) when we were 11….and we stayed in touch.
