The Swing Set

After 18 years of marriage and now that the oldest boy is 17 we decided it was high time we get the kids a swing set!


This could very well be the biggest project the husband has ever tackled.
All the kids wanted to help!

The husband and kids worked on the swing set every spare minute they could...they followed the 57 step manual and watched the 45 minute instructional video.
Working for 5 days and some nights...

Until finally...


It was finished and this girl went down the slide about 200 times in a row.

Do I need to tell you how much my little girls love this?! They've named the play houses "The Princess Inn".

D suggests we Consider multi-tasking in order to spend one-on-one time with a child such as including him as you run an errand, or suggest that a child work with you in the kitchen or laundry room--or putting together a swing set!

  1. Is that the Costco one? My husband and his buddy put up ours a few years ago and it was quite a process. How fun! Enjoy your swing set!
