Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, totally worn out and screaming,
"WOO HOO, what a ride!"

I'm a little late today but I've been outside enjoying this wonderful weather! Last weekend my kids decided to build a swing set for the kiddos. My hubby also built one twenty years ago when our kids were very little. He looked at photos to get ideas, created his own and continued to add to it over the years. Even when our kids outgrew it we left it in our yard for nieces, nephews and other little visitors. Now the grandkids are using it but they also needed one of their own. My boys got ambitious and created their own version with a playhouse included. They are lucky to have such a terrific example to follow and the kiddos are lucky to have such fun places to play. And I like it too!

  2. What a lot of fun! There's nothing quite like a swing set to complete a backyard.

  3. Oh boy! There will be plenty of fun play accomplished at your house this Spring! What a fun kid keeper a swingset is!

    Kudos to the construction crew!

  4. How fun! It's kind of bittersweet watching things come full circle.

  5. My kids would love to have playhouse like that..I am showing this to my husband :)

  6. That's so special--the kids get a fun place to play, and it's so wonderful that the family builds it for them.

  7. What cute photos, and a beautiful swing set for the little ones as well.

  8. Your guys did a great job! The playhouse looks like tons of fun will be had in there over the years.

  10. What an awesome swingset! Lots of quality hours will be spent there. (and those kiddos are the cutest)
    We walk half a mile every night to the school so Gage can swing and go down the slide :)
