Spinning Wheel of Doom

As the parent of 2 boys, I probably don't have to go out of my way to find a new activity they can injure themselves with. And now, with the addition of the Spinning Wheel of Doom to our backyard, I don't have to look far at all...Yup, that's right, we now have a merry-go-round in our backyard. How many other people can say that? Why do we have a merry-go-round? Well, one day, my dad thought, "Why don't I build a merry-go-round?" So he had some metal worker friends create this awesome merry-go-round shaft with super strong bearings that are similar to those found in cars.


Of course, Will wasn't quite sure what the merry-go-round shaft was. However, his Grandpa involved him in the entire creation process.

Yup, we continue to insist on using our car for tasks that it was not designed for. We will get something else eventually, don't worry.
