Cooper's first Monster Jam, pt. 2

Cooper's joy all night was so much fun to be around. I mean, I like Monster Jam and it was a great show, but doing it with my son was awesome.

Before the show started they had a bunch of people out driving around remote control Monster Jam trucks, which really kept Cooper's attention for a good 15 minutes. Which was also the number of times he let me know that he'd really like one of those sometime.

FedExForum is tight quarters for monster trucks, so they can't do as many tricks as the football stadiums, but it was still a great show ...

The trucks started off with a Wheelie Competition, plus they had a Donut Competition and raced before doing the ultimate freestyle round ...

We bought some headphones that day that are made for going to gun ranges, which was good, because it was so loud Cooper actually requested to wear them the whole time ...

Max-D doing his thing ...

Cooper was very much impressed with the Freestyle Motorcycle guys who jumped the ramps and did tricks, flips, all kinds of sweet moves ...

Then there was Megasaurus, a tank that turned into a dinosaur to "eat" a car while breathing fire. Cooper wasn't sure whether it was super cool or super terrifying ...
