The Swing Set
This is our new swing set. Chad and I and our neighbors had decided last summer that the swing sets that the kids played on were becoming more and more unsafe. Since our neighbors have 6 kids and we have 4 we also decided that we wanted something big enough that all the kids could play on at the same time and not have to break up fights over swings! Anyway, this year we were able to purchase the wood so that our little vision could become reality, however, because Chad had his eye surgery this spring he was not able to do any of the building so our wonderful neighbor said that he would build it. He has done an amazing job so far (we are not quite finished) and the kids spend most of their day playing in the sand box or swinging on the swings. We are still going to add two slides and a pole for them to slide down, along with a roof and possibly a loft in the fort area! We are all looking forward to seeing the completed product and the kids really are so thankful for the new things to play on!
