The BIG Backyard Build!

We decided to take the plunge and get a swingset for the kids. Cory and his dad have spent the last two weekends putting it together. It was quite the job!! They worked so hard. All day yesterday Christopher would periodically open the back door and ask how many more minutes until it would be finished! He has been beside himself with excitement over it. I know we will be spending endless hours of fun out there in the days to come!

This is what our backyard looked like last Sunday (and all week long). They only had Sunday of last weekend to build it because most of Saturday was spent purchasing and unloading all the boxes.

The finished product!

A happy boy climbs!

A happy girl swings!

Thanks again Neal, for all of your help! Cory would not have been able to do it without you!!

What an awesome looking swingset. The kids are going to have so much fun playing on it.

We are also looking into buying a swing set for the kiddos.

I think we are in denial as to how much work it is to put it together!

Yours looks like a BLAST!

That looks awesome! I can tell you from experience, that you will get years of enjoyment out of that thing! Ours was purchased for Cass' 3rd birthday, and to this day they will still go out there and hang out on the swings and up in the fort. Eight years later!!! We might even miss it when we have to leave it. John and I have already agreed that it will not be moved!

So much fun and Julie is right--they will enjoy it for many years. The fort becomes a great place to get away when you are a preteen!!

I look forward to many performances on the swing set!!
