Touch-a-Truck - a success!

My friend Jason from Island Rec invited Edna and I to participate in an Event called Touch-a-Truck. Every year Island Rec brings all sorts of fire trucks, police cars, dump trucks, ambulances, and other cool vehicles to my old elementary school.

Touch-a-Truck at Friday Harbor Elementary School

Hot peppermint or cold lemon tea was on the menu.

Kids always ask the best questions about the tea bus, but many parents were equally interested. Some kids wouldn’t leave. To them it was the best place to spend the wet afternoon. I don’t blame them…
