swing set.

We (I??) decided that we “needed” a swing set in our backyard to make it through the endless summer days with these FOUR kids. So we sort of splurged and got a pretty cool swing set.

And so far… IT’S SO FREAKING AWESOME!!! They play and play and play. I hope they play like this for months on end. And Brittany and Mikey have really been spending lots more time together. It’ been great! Can you tell that I’m just a little bit excited about it?

A friend told me that a good swing set can change your life. I think she might be right. I think she might need to get her own t.v. show.

Anyway, here are a few picture from today after church. The kids played outside while I fixed lunch. And then we had lunch outside in the shade, and then the kids just played. It was so nice. And then Phillip got home and we tried to take a nap, but we couldn’t because of stinkin’ Mikey! But that’s beside the point. Enjoy some photos.

And since I can’t post photos of the other two, I’ll just post some of this one. And not because he’s the favorite either. He was very tickled that his cup was swinging too.

  1. We’ve had ours for 3 years and while it goes in spurts this past year, they have played and played and played for 3 years. And we don’t even have the monkey bar part! Wait until they figure out they can hang things off the monkey bars and string up toys and animals… haha

    My own show, huh? What would we call it? LOL

    Two things really quick:
    1) check for wasp nests up in the corners of the fort and underneath the fort, just occasionally. (usually my kids come SCREAMING into the house when they spot one)
    2) After the first year, or months of continual use, you may want to re-tighten some of the bolts. The swinging action loosens them occasionally.
