And here's the wolf cave they got to sleep in.
As if that wasn't enough, we came home to a big surprise. Here's the news clip from that evening: http://www.katu.com/news/local/For-him-to-have-this-to-play-with-its-a-dream-come-true-165079486.html
I can't believe all that was done for us. Friends, neighbors and strangers all came together in the 103 degree heat and worked ALL day long, cleaning everything spotless inside and out, new light fixtures outside, new plants, bushes, and flowers, new bedding and decor for the boys bedroom, new kitchen set for the baby girl, cleaned our carpets, and of course the huge play structure in the backyard. I can't name everything that was done it was so much. And I have no idea who all helped. I know a few of you that were involved but I know there was more that are still unknown to us. So just let me say THANK YOU!!!!! Thank you so much, this all means so much to us. To see the look on the faces of our kids when they saw they're new bedroom and "park in the backyard" (as they call it) was priceless. I can never say thank you enough. I am overcome with emotion whenever I think about all the kindness that we have been the recipents of. We are amazed and comforted by the goodness of the world around us. We already knew that we have fantastic friends because they've done SO MUCH for us already. But their dedication, along with that of others that we've never even met is just.... I'm in awe. A special thanks to Sergeant Shane and Denise for organizing this whole thing. We are so happy that you chose our son to be your Sheriff and that we've had the opportuny to work so closely with you all summer long. I don't even know where to begin with my Thank Yous for you so I'll save that for later :) We had such an amazing weekend, it's hard to go back to real life today. But it's made much easier because my house is clean and pretty, and the kids are outside playing :)
