A few weeks ago, my parents came to visit. Their visits are always fun, and they always go by much too quickly. On this visit, my mom announced that she wanted to get a backyard play set for Dylan. Ben and I didn't have any complaints about this one- we knew that he would love it!
After looking around at a few different options, we decided on a great set that was on display at Costco. The price was much better than anything else we had seen, and the look and features of the set was great. When we got all 6 enormous boxes home from Costco, we saw the 110 page instruction manual (ouch), and the estimated assembly time: 10-12 hours for the main set, 2-3 hours for the slide. Ben initially laughed at this and said that he and my dad would get it together in a few hours. Famous last words.
Here is the before shot of my backyard.... pay no attention to the dead grass, scraggly growth, etc. It's a work in progress, right?
Fun, right? Dylan absolutely loves it- he calls it "Dylan's house" and has played in it each day. The neighbor kids love it too- it's been a party in our backyard for the past week or two.
A million thanks to my wonderfully generous parents- Dylan loves it!
