Carli's Getting a Swing Set - Part 1

Keith and I had toyed with the idea of getting a nice swing set for the girls - perhaps for Carli's birthday. The only downer is that Carli's birthday in in October about when the weather starts cooling off, so she'd spend a good 6 months looking wistfully out the window at her awesome swing set! So, we decided that we should go ahead and get one. Carli loves to go to the park and swing and slide. We looked around a lot online. Spent one whole Saturday driving around looking at Rainbow's, some Amish made ones and the ones at Toys R Us. We finally decided on the Highlander by Leisure Time Play Sets at Sams. The folks that make this set are the same ones that make the Backyard Adventures one. But what really sold us was that there were three different levels, all encased with railings, with small steps to go from one level to the other - not just one 'deck.' We thought this would be easier for the girls to get up and down - and it made Momma feel better too!

Last Friday night, Keith and I spent an hour and a half just sorting all the wood!


I think Keith said there were over 1000 wood screws!

Ava and Tighty thought the boxes were awesome!


To say all the wood, screws and instructions were intimidating would have been an understatement! Keith enlisted the help of our friend David to come over, and they hit the road running Saturday morning...
