Dune Buggy Baby!

Seeking a little adventure on our land in Henry county we researched off-road vehicles, (looking for something safer than four-wheelers), and we chose a Talon dune buggy with four point harness straps and roll bars. We put the machine on lay-away last autumn hoping to get it out for the kids for Christmas 2007. It took us a bit longer to pay it off than anticipated, (like a year!), and we finally got it out this past Friday on Isaac's 14th birthday. It was a big surprise for him. (p.s. Thank God for roll bars! Isaac rolled the dune buggy on the first day. Suffice it to say that I wasn't too happy about it.)

Robbie and Anna - woo hoo!This is fun...Shaughn and his new wife, Renee...Lily Anna and her best friend Michaela - yes, they actually drove this bad buggy... check out the video below.Robbie and Isaac...
This is Isaac's injury after he rolled the dune buggy with his friend Jordan in the passenger's seat. With the dune buggy sitting on it's roll bars and the boys hanging upside down from the shoulder straps Isaac said the conversation went something like this, "Hey man, you o.k.? Yep. What about you? O.k? Yep. O.k."

Friends at the farm...
Silly girls...
Sophie driving... slowly!
Uncle Bobby and the kids...
Now this is my dainty little girl - ever so feminine - not!


Lily Anna and Michaela had to stay in the clearing driving a figure eight, but they had fun...
