Boys Night Out at Monster Jam

Party in the Pits

I love being a dad. Getting to spend time with my kids is my favorite hobby, and one of our favorite yearly events is going to Monster Jam. I’ve been taking my boys to Monster Jam for many years, and usually, go with the same group of dads and their kids every year. This year, we did something a little different. My younger son and his friends were talking about the upcoming Monster Jam show, and he asked me if I could take him with his two best friends to see the show this year, and, of course, I said, “yes.”

At first, I was excited to take my son and his buddies to see the show, then reality set in, and I thought to myself, “what did I get myself into?” One dad and three boys for half a day? But, when I make a commitment to my kids, I keep it.

All the parents dropped their boys off at our house around 1 pm and we went to lunch before heading up the freeway to Angel’s Stadium. We arrived ready to “Party in the Pits.” The boys ran all over the outdoor celebration being held in the parking lot for hours before the show. They checked out every single detail of the monster trucks with meeting the Jiffy Lube girls being their highlight of the pre-show entertainment.

Finally, it was time for the show to begin. We ordered some hot dogs, sodas (don’t tell my wife) and candy before taking our seats to see the show. Monster Jam never disappoints. The show had the boys jumping off their seats with excitement and they were cheering, shouting and rooting for their favorite trucks. It was the best night, and I was so glad that I took the boys to see the show.

As I was driving the kids home, they couldn’t stop talking about the show. The smiles on their faces and the excitement in the tone of their voice gave me the best feeling. Creating special memories with my kids is my favorite thing to do, and Monster Jam will always be one of our favorite places to spend quality time together.
