Rocky Road

This is my fish Rocky Road. He is a Betta fish. He is 1 year old. He is a wonderful fish. He is a very vicious eater when you put his food in he darts up like a rocket and snatches it.
I got rocky from a pet store. I  got him a coconut tree decoration and a sunken ship decoration.

Lincoln Log General Store and Tavern

General Store and Tavern

 We like to play Cowboys and Indians. Some times the Indians get into the town, but the Cowboys are there to save the day.


We built these out of Lincoln Logs. We have some Lincoln Logs that are newer ones and some of the original ones. The original Lincoln Logs are from when my mom was a little girl. The building on the right is the Tavern. The one on the left is the General Store.

Little B and the chipmunk


Today our cat little B brought a chipmunk into our house. My dad and brother had gone to the library so it was just my mom and I at home. I was in my room reading and I heard my mom shout "Sam little B has brought something into the house!" So I ran down stairs thinking that it was a leaf or a corn husk or something like that. Because, in the past he has brought in various items including leaves and corn husks. But when I got downstairs I heard a squealing sound I thought that it was a bird but my mom said "It is chippy!" Well, chippy is a chipmunk that has been living  in our yard barn. Little B was in the living room and he had chippy cornered under a couch. I grabbed Little B and handed him to my mom. Then I lifted up the couch while my mom made a barricade out of cushions. Then chippy decided to make run for it he ran under a table and stayed under it. I said to my mom " We need to get a net!" While she was getting the net chippy scurried out of the living room and into the dining room. Luckily I caught sight of him and when my mom came back with the net I knew where he was so my mom grabbed a cushion and we set out after chippy. When we got in there chippy was under a chair. After a few tries with the net I realized that chipmunks are pretty fast. Then my mom suggested that we open the front door and chase him out. After I opened the door I chased chippy outside and when he was outside he flew like a rocket into our flower garden! Thanks for reading!

P.S.
The reason little B brought the chippy inside the house in the first place is because my brother left the patio door open!

Fuzz Buzz and Rex aka Mama and Papa

This is Rex and Fuzz Buzz

We got Rex at a gun show in Oshkosh,WI. A man was selling bunnies at the gun show. But he was desperate, and gave us Rex. It is kind of a long story. But to make it short, the man was going to have more bunnies in a few days. So he kinda of begged my mom to take Rex. My brother Sam and I are real happy she let us get him. 
 Rex is a Velvet Rex rabbit that is where we got the name Rex.


Sam bought Fuzz Buzz from a Hobby Farm in Prentice,WI. Fuzz Buzz is a Lionhead rabbit. 

Last year we had our first baby bunnies. It was so much fun.

But it was kind of hard to give them away. The good thing, we know they all went to good homes.

We have put Mama and Papa together again!
We will keep you posted.

We have blogged about our cats, one of our fish and two of our bunnies. We have one bunny, one fish and my mom's dog to tell you about.
Check back soon!

Cannon

This is a cannon that we built out of five pieces of wood and a PVC pipe. We first put a flat board on the bottom and nailed two long board's on top the flat one. Then we put two more long board's but we cut a slot on both ends and that is where we put the nails to hold it down. Finally, we got to put the gun on which we made out of the PVC pipe. We had to drill a hole in the PVC pipe and both board's that is where on the top we put a bolt through and tightend it up so it won't fall down when we play. It can go up and down. We might put wheels on sometime, still thinking.

 Thanks for reading!!

Teepee



We built this teepee over the weekend at our Grandma and Grandpa's house. It only took us an hour and fifteen minutes. We first found a long branch with a fork at the top. We then sharpened the bottom and then we placed it in the center of where we were building our teepee. Then we collected some other long branches and laid them onto the forked part of the center branch. Then we collected some smaller branches and laid them across and on the longer ones. Then it was finished. We plan on making a roof of pine bows this summer. More posts coming soon!!

Bus and bus stop

   This is a bus and bus stop that we created for our City. It has lights and skylights. There is also a newspaper stand not far from the bus stop, so if you wanted to read while you wait you can! The bus fare is very affordable starting at $3.00 a half trip and only $6.00 a full trip. They also put on tours of the City every two weeks. You can also survive those hot summer days with the bus's air conditioning.

You may also get a nice view of the city with the bus's windows.
Thanks for stopping by! More posts coming soon!
