" Higher"

It finally happened.  We bit the bullet and got the boys a play set.  I've been trying to talk Adam into this since Dylan was a baby.  He kept thinking he could " build one " himself.  Yes, I have no doubt that he could, but it would take weeks, maybe months of short one or two hour sessions.  Finally, he caved, and I went to doing what I do best.  Online research.  I found a place that had great reviews, so we made plans to go check them out.

Of course, we headed there with one in mind, and once we saw it, and talked with the workers, we decided on another one.  Thankfully, they were " On sale" so getting a different one wasn't too shocking!

We did a roof top, which is still on it's way!
They had a two week backlog of delivery and install, and they of course wanted to come the day I left for Vegas.  Monday was the day.  The boys watched for most of the morning as Dylan kept saying " Is it done yet?" I told him no for hours, seriously, it would have taken Adam a year to do this.  It took them four hours and that was uninterrupted, and it's their job.

Eventually, right at nap time, the guys finished.  Needless to say, I had to let them play before nap time, because of course, we had dinner plans at Adam's parents house, and we would have to leave right after they woke up.  I'll tell you what, they were not happy when they couldn't play before we left.  Luckily, Adam's parents under stood why we wanted to eat and run, so that's what we did.  They got another hour or so, showing Daddy their new " wingset" and slide.  So far, I'd say it's a pretty good purchase, but I guess it's too early to say!

Looks fun and I like the different options like the rope ladder that you don't always see.

Amazing!!! I want one so bad, but I would love a bigger house, so if we are going to move in the near future, I dont' want to move a swing set. So we are just going to wait!!
