I have a son obsessed with cars of all kinds. This will be his first time going to Monster Jam and he is truly excited.

Monster Jam® Returns to Capital One Arena with Three Larger-Than-Life Events on January 26-27

It isn’t easy to find things for my kids to do that they all enjoy, so sometimes, I have to just take them out separately. My middle son has had one “thing” for as long as we can remember. Cars. So when I heard that Monster Jam was coming to Washington, I had to give him a chance to see what it was about. I’ve never been, but I have heard that it is SUPER exciting.

He always had a car in his pocket or in his hand by the time he was two, went to his first car show at three, had his own car blog by eight, and has a collection of car brochures that he reads every single day.

I don’t think I ever had a thing that I was totally obsessed with like Dave.  Sometimes I wonder what it would feel like to be all into one thing. He has other things he enjoys like tennis and photography, but cars are his first love.

Even when he gets his hands on a camera, his favorite thing to photograph is cars. During the snow storm, he went out to take photos of the snow, and came back with photos of snow on cars and icicles hanging from the exhaust pipe. They were beautiful, but the theme remained the same. Cars. While everyone had their mind on the snow, his focus never wavered.

Now that he is thirteen, he not only loves cars, but I have fewer chances to spend time with him doing things he loves. In just a few years, he will have his own vehicle (which he has already started saving money for), and I feel like he will fasten his seatbelt, jump on the highway, and roll off into the sunset.

 Monster Jam®  delivers an “unexpected, unscripted and unforgettable, most family-friendly motor sport” and is coming to Washington DC for three events at Capital One Arena on January 26-27. I can’t wait to experience it with him.

[…] As expected, my car obsessed son had a blast. He cheered, he voted, he took photos, and he was super happy that he went. My husband, may have had more fun than all of us. Like me, growing up, he just watched these sorts of events on TV, and when the monster truck commercials came on TV on Saturday mornings, he longed to be in the middle of the action. He was so ready. “Sunday! Sunday! Sunday!” He yelled that out at least three times in the car on the way to Monster Jam… on a Sunday. Does it… Read more »

Monster Jam sounds like so much fun! I don’t have any children, but I’m sure my future children will definitely enjoy this. I would enjoy this too!

My son was this type of boy. He was into all type of trucks and cars. I feel like he had every toy that came with wheels. Monster Truck is the perfect event for a car/truck lover.

Monster Jam looks super cool! I’m gonna have to keep it on my radar for next year. I have two boys who are both pretty obsessed with Legos. I like the STEM aspect of them building and creating.

My son is still a newborn so he’s just obsessed with eating and his pacifier right now. I’m interested to see as he gets to be a big boy what will he be in to.
