Two great events made for one great day. After a morning of treating several patients, I headed home to get the kids for a day of adventure. First stop, the 7th annual E-Fest. Upon arriving at the Armory, it was no wonder why they refer to this show as the world’s largest indoor modeling event. Everywhere I looked we saw airplanes and helicopters. People of all ages were gathered indoors having a blast at this great event. Thanks to Hobbico for holding E-Fest here in Champaign County! A quick bite later, the kids and I stopped to pick up pops (grandpa) and off to the Assembly Hall for the E3 Spark Plugs Monster Truck Nationals. We arrived early and headed down to the floor with our pit pass to get up close to these amazing machines. After meeting the drivers and taking pictures we headed to our seats. Right before the show started, I handed everyone some ear plugs I’d picked up earlier that day – but these beasts were no match for those tiny pieces of foam. Kid #2 was too scared – so we called it a day and headed home. We’ll probably stick with watching Monster Jams at 6 a.m. so we can control the volume.
