A blog about me and my adventure as an ex-pat.
Because someone told me to... Thank you Gaby.

After running errands on Saturday morning, including a trip to the Kalamazoo Farmers Market (fresh farm eggs, fragrant lilac, local honey and new basil plants were just a few things we picked up), the kids got a treat in the form of a huge field full of every type of truck they could imagine.

From fire trucks and ambulances to diggers and oil drills, school buses and racing cars to semi trucks and smart cars, you name it, it was there!

Rows and rows of vehicles that they could touch, climb into, honk the horn and dream of one day being big enough to touch the pedals!

Organised by the Junior League of Kalamazoo (which I thought was something to do with baseball but turns out to be a group of women dedicated to volunteering!) it was a fantastic event and we all loved it!

Charlotte and I were excited to sit in one of the iconic yellow school buses (I felt like Bart Simpson) and Toby did not want to get out of the racing car. Jeremy said he has always wanted to pull the air horn on one of those huge semi trucks and man are they loud!

As you can see in the pictures, my girlie little daughter, who insisted on wearing a big puffy dress all day, is equally as happy acting the tomboy and running round the big trucks... Just like her Mummy!
