We were lucky enough to attend the Monster Jam 2014 at CONSOL Energy Center last night. My daughter loves the monster trucks. However, with her snsory disorder we usually take electronic ear muffs (made for shooting) for her, and with the new baby and taking him to the sitter as well as getting everything ready for our 3 hour round trip, wouldn't you know I forgot them! Luckily, they sell ear plugs and foam ear muffs there at the merchandise stand. Even so, we still had an amazing time.
This is a great event for the whole family to spend some time together having fun. There were some amazing trucks there this year: Grave Digger®, Monster Mutt℠, Iron Man™, Zombie℠, Xtermigator, Ice Cream Man, Illuminator and Instigator! Of course my daughter's favorite is Grave Digger, my favorite is Zombie, and the boys' favorite was Iron Man. This was Iron Man's first time in Pittsburgh, and he did exceptionally well. Below are some pictures from the event.
I really didn't get to take too many pictures because my regular camera batteries died, I did have my cell phone with me, but the thing goes dead so quick when in use for a long period of time, it's a Galaxy S3. All in all, it was a great night, with the exception that my daughter was extremely upset that Grave Digger didn't win every event (she is only 5 and he is her favorite).
I also wanted to mention how much the kids love the CONSOL Energy Center too. There are some pretty amazing sights within it.
