The Birth of a Playground

A photo documentary.

Getting the slide off the trailer…

Daddy and his friends, Mr. David, Mr. Adam (hidden on the backside), Mr. Chad, and Uncle Boo move it to the right spot in the yard.

Ta-da! Missing only a ladder and the slide … but as you can see we are finally getting rain so we can’t play on it today. : (

And no post of this magnitude would be complete without the inevitable shedding of first blood.

And now that we have this way cool playground it POURED last night ... so we are snuggled inside today, having a rainy movie morning, drinking an extra cup of coffee, and looking forward to lunch out in a few hours with Grandma and Aunt Kathy.

  7. A friend of ours gave the kids a playset in 1998. We built it from a kit. It's 9 now and still be used...even by the teens to swing. Great thing to have! Yours is very cool!
