Try'n Out the Old Chair...

This is Mike's Grandpa Kemp...he picked it up really quick...He didn't pull any wheelies...but he's a pro! Love you Grandpa!
There's something about wheelchairs that's just intriguing...you just can't pass it up! I've been trying to figure it out for months now...and it's still a puzzle to me! I think it's the untouchable challenge that just kinda hangs in front of you..."I wonder if I could do that..." at least that's what I think! It has been real funny to see the different "takers" of this challenge...of turning...bumbing...racing...and the ultimate...wheelies! When you take this challenge of wheelies....that's when the spills happen...and boy have they happened! The first...if my memory serves me right...it was my big...tough...brother...Riley! His feet went straight in the air! Then there was our cute....outgoing...sister Kamie...Mike took the wheelie bars off and forgot to tell her about it...ooops...then me... I got a little comfortable...and well...lets just say I was sent sailing back into humility...then our hilarious cousin Clint...and his gorgeous wife Tina! The list is building Those are just the dumps (to every one's credit...the chair has a mind of it's own and decides to dump those who are just about to figure it out...it's smart that way)! ....Mike had a little spill himself...his was in the name of sacrifice! He didn't' get enough umph while pushing up the ramp in the garage...racing back down...he glanced back and realized he would run right over Brody....so he quickly hit is breaks...which sent his feet up and over his head...and Mike right out of his chair! You can imagine...I was slightly alarmed upon finding him down on the concrete floor!He said... "I think that must have hurt my tailbone...I'm sure I landed on it" (one of our fears is Mike will break a bone...and he won't feel it...so we won't know it) We checked everywhere...and he was just fine...thankfully...and so was Brody...thanks to his incredibly protective father, Mike! So yes...spills have happened in his chair...but every time has been so worth it and created quite the funny memory in our minds!
