Hamster balls

We would like to introduce you to 2 of the newest members of our family, Lulu and Lilah. Josh had a hamster a couple of years ago, and he was so happy to get 2 new hamsters at the end of school. I am NOT a hamster/rodent kind of person, but I have to admit, they are awfully cute rolling around in their balls. Josh has done a good job of caring for them. Like a lot of siblings, after a few weeks, we realized they could not share a room, I mean cage. There was some biting, hamster screeching, etc., so we let Bill Jr. take Lilah downstairs in a separate cage to live with him, and Lulu stayed upstairs with Josh. Everyone is happy now!

Not wanting to be left out of the fun, we bought our own people version of the hamster ball for the kids. We were literally stopping traffic as the kids rolled around the front yard in their very own hamster ball.

The hamster ball made it's debut at a neighborhood kids party. We have a great neighborhood, with lots of nice kids for my children to play with. A couple of the families are military, like us, and they were moving at the beginning of the summer. So, we pulled out the slip-and-slides, blew up the hamster ball, and threw some hot dogs on the grill for one last night of fun!
