Roller Coaster

We bought a Kiddie roller coaster!!

Mike is changing the motor from electric to gas. Then we will have it powder coated. We will remove it from the trailer and make our own platform. The track is about 40 feet around. He plans on landscaping all around it. He wants a pond in the middle and the track will circle around it. It will be soooooo fun when it's done.

Swing Set

Well the swing and merry-go-round are in and done. Mike built the frame and we ordered the swings and tire swing on-line. Then we had the merry-go-round powder coated to match. We still have the submarine to install. The playground bark will be here soon. We had a cement boarder added around the edge for a bike-walking path. The kids love it!

Our lovely neighbor and friend Brian and his wife gave the kids two Pachinko machines today. They are having a blast with them. They are extremely loud. Which Brian by the way thought would be so funny. " It's going to drive you nuts". Thanks Brian. LOL.

~Keegan~ A great day!

For those of you that don't know about Keegan. His first year of life was on a 24 hour feeding tube in his nose. At 10 months he had surgery and a Mic-key Button was placed in his stomach.

Then, his second year of life, he had bolus feedings with a pump in his tummy tube. As he has gotten older, the last three years he eats most toddler type foods.

Well, today was a great day. We took Keegan to the pediatrician and they removed his Mic-key button. What a big boy. We are sooooo proud. He has done so well. So now we hope that he will learn to take his medication by mouth. Here is a photo of him when he got home. He was so excited to play with his new remote control toy, he didn't want to stop for the photo.

The Lake

We had a great week with school so I decided we should go to the lake for fun yesterday. The water was extremely low but we had a great time anyway.

Well Kylene is going to give blogging a try. She bought a new camera after saving allowance for a couple months. She's a bright girl, so I bet we will all enjoy her posts. I have added her link so
if you get a chance to look, she would be thrilled.

They all had fun walking around the park.Then we took them to the museum to see the

This is our new "puppy" she is 2 years old. Nanci from Kingmont Mastiffs called and asked if we would be interested in adopting a rescued mastiff. She is very thin. She needs to put on some weight. But she is beautiful and Watson is in love. We will update with photos. She is going to be a great addition to the family.
