Rippin' Rocket

On Father's Day, after our amazing dinner of Chinese food-eaten completely with chopsticks I might add, we stopped at a VERY large thrift store. We only had 25 minutes until closing time, but we made the most of it. Blue-Raspberry found this awesome K'nex roller coaster called Rippin' Rocket. It was only $9.

He worked very hard on building this roller coaster, both of his older brother's and even his big sister helped occasionally with the construction. Here he is halfway through construction. And here is today! Project is complete! Chocolate Taffy has a knack for building things and following complicated and vague directions. So he finished this up and surprised Blue-Raspberry with the results.
Here's a little movie so you can see what it does exactly. Notice their pink noses...it was a perfect day for the beach! Also, if you look closely you can see a mess out that door there...I'll tell you what that's from in another post (although all that pounding is a pretty big clue)!
