Our Wagon

"I bought a large Radio Flyer wagon for my own children years ago. They are all in their twenties now. I had the one with the wooden sides. I used the heck out of that thing. We used it for every parade for Mardi Gras. We decorated it for school and used it in all the school parades. We used it to carry babies, children, coolers, picnic food--you name it. We delivered Girl Scout cookies in it. Sometimes we needed to take the wooden sides off, but we could put them back on again. My children used to play in the yard that it was a pretend bed or emergency vehicle. Sadly, when packing up for Hurricane Katrina, I had to leave it behind, and I really didn't want to. There was no more room for the Radio Flyer (and the Tonka trucks). Our cars couldn't hold any more stuff; a lot got left behind. I didn't know we would get 10 to 11 feet of water for 2 weeks, moving my house off its foundation. But we are all ok now (I live 90 feet above sea level today.). Bought this one for my darling little granddaughter. Hope we have lots of fun with it for many years.
