Catching Up — trash truck festival

LA Bureau of Sanitation throws these ridiculously brilliant open houses each spring. Free to all, they clean up the garbage trucks and line them up. You're allowed to climb in and push the buttons and empty the cans yourself. Starboy was too timid to try this, so we coaxed him onto a forklift.

The event was a crazy din of banging trucks and metal, loud music, and children's shrieks. It was a little overwhelming for Starboy, but he found it exhilarating as well.

Demos, demos, demos

 Starboy and Mommy counted the lug nuts on a truck.

Mariachis, Radio Disney, games of chance and skill, and free burgers, hot dogs and drinks (well, we didn't have any of those). They even gave away free trees and tomato plants. It was a great Saturday morning and we're excite for next year!
