Sometimes the best evenings are the ones you don’t quite expect. That was a lesson our boy learned one late November evening.
To set the scene: he had been very much looking forward to a return visit to Monster Jam — the monster truck exhibition we had attended a couple years ago. (See our coverage of it here.) There was plenty of marketing, including giant print ads at bus stops, for the show, which was set for early December, a week or so from this particular evening.
So this one weekday evening in November, we decided on a quick visit to the beach for some digging in the sand at dusk. Always a fun time:
After dinner at a waterfront restaurant, we took a stroll home. Our route happened to take us by the Roxy Square hotel, a popular and good-sized mid-priced hotel in our neighborhood. And lo and behold, what was parked outside the hotel to drum up interest in Monster Jam?
Nyan’s favorite Monster Jam truck — Megalodon!
He was over the moon. It was a dream come true — the answer to his prayers, he said later (he clarified that, were he the praying type, this is exactly what he would have prayed for).
Okay, this wasn’t that big a deal in the grand scheme of things, but it made our boy very happy. What’s not to lover about that?
Stay tuned for more about Monster Jam itself in an upcoming post…
