New Toy

John brought home a "new toy" for the family the other day. He has been talking about getting a 4-wheeler for awhile now. We used to have a golf cart to drive around that we used when John was racing but he sold that and the kids were really itching for something to drive around this summer. We used to have a snowmobile (when we only had one child) but the winters were sparse on snow so he sold that too, or maybe traded it. This winter would be perfect for one but John wasn't keen on spending money on a snowmobile that can only be used for one season.

Low and behold he was talking with a guy at work the other day and out of the blue the guy asked if he might be interested in buying a 4-wheeler. And it turns out it was a great deal and perfect timing. And the kids were over the moon thrilled!


I have yet to ride on it but that is the daily event for everyone else now. Today everyone had a chance to learn to drive while Daddy gave advice on the back. One of these days maybe I'll get my turn too. I think that John is having the most fun of all! I have a feeling this is the first of the big toys. I mean, how will five boys share this one vehicle? :)
