Ready, Set, PLAY!

We (meaning I) have wanted a playset for a really long time. This year I decided it was time to bite the bullet and get one. Thanks to Costco and their affordable wooden playsets, we did just that. Back in May I told Ryan that all I wanted for mother's day was to have the playset built. Thanks to a very wet & rainy Spring, it didn't quite happen on our timeline. However, yesterday afternoon, Ryan finished the playset. Ryan deserves all the credit in getting this done. He did 100% of it by himself over a two week period. I helped out a tiny bit, but not much. I was kinda his Vanna. So, even though the instructions say it's a 3-man job. It can be done with just one very PATIENT man, you just have know it takes a little longer. 

Needless to say the kids are very, VERY grateful to their pappa and are so happy to have it done!

The gazillion boxes of wood/parts to label and organize - 3+hrs

Building the rock wall and slide - 5+hrs

Building the play set house/fort - 8+ hrs

The evident joy & happiness of the kiddos: PRICELESS!
