Coming Soon...

For Christmas my Dad gave the Twinner's funding for a backyard play set. Weeks later, Auntie Rachel walked into her area Home Depot and found a STEAL of a deal on this... She called me from the store last January and I purchased it over the phone. We picked it up the next day and it has been sitting in the corner of our garage (to begin it's depute this weekend).

Last week, we got the slide, also discounted, because it has a scratch on the side. Tonight or tomorrow we will go get the 5 beams needed. Construction is expected to begin tomorrow morning, with the help of Mark's family!

In a week of two, we will hopefully have a finished product that looks something like the photo above! I foresee it will NOT be completed in 6 hours as indicated on the box. I foresee some complications, and perhaps some swear words to get to the finished product - BUT... I am sure it will be worth it!

Andrea - I remember my dad building the old swing set we had for the girls. I would have plenty of "beverages" on hand. The end product was beautiful but getting to the end product was "interesting". Maybe mom remembers a little bit more. I remember lots of irritation. Maybe it was between father-in-law and son-in-law. Dee

Okay, I want to come play on that. Good luck!

I also foresee that magical stars won't sparkle around it as your kids play on it, but it looks guaranteed to be fun!

Best wishes putting it up -- can't wait to hear how it goes.
