The swingset project, phase 1

We finally found a swingset that we liked, and bought it right away, since the store only had 3 of them. Then it sat in our garage while we patiently awaited the end of winter in Michigan. We're actually still waiting, it's snowing outside right now, but we did have a few nice days last week to get started.

The kids posing by the boxes. The boxes behind the grill are all the heavy wood pieces, and the slide is to the left.

My dad, aunt, and uncle came over to help, and the kids were eager to help too. We started on a Thursday evening and worked until dark

The million lb bag of bolts and screws-very intimidating!

We didn't get very far that night and decided to keep working on it on the next warm day-Sunday. Vivi had the flu so I stayed inside with her all day, but they got a lot accomplished!

Hopefully it will only take one more day's worth of work and we'll be able to really enjoy it!
