The Playset....Ohhhh, The Playset

Several weeks ago we decided that it was time to buy a playset for Brylee and Nolan. Well, I did my research and basically every playset I looked at had the same comment for the people that purchased them - "hard to put together". With my unbelievable handyman skills, I thought it would be a piece of cake for me.

So after buying the playset, I open up one of the three 150lb boxes and find the instruction booklet. 58 pages consisting of 38 phases. So the instruction booklet says that it should take anywhere from 6-12 hours to put together. However, none of the wood was numbered.

Lets just say that I have worked on this monster for 32 hours now and still have not got the monkey bars or the swings on this thing yet. But, it is actually usable right now. We have a slide, a picnic table, and a rockwall that Brylee has been having a blast on. I will take more pictures when I finally get it completely finished.

Hey Brother!

Climbing all by herself

Just before her first (and last) head-first slide
Actually she didn't do a head-first slide but she does like to have someone at the bottom of the slide to catch her before she hits the ground. She is climbing both the ladder and the rockwall by herself and sliding down herself. She has a blast with it so, I guess all-in-all it was worth the 32 hours spent so far!

Well the kids are really growing and I cannot seem to keep this blog up-to-date as you can tell. Nolan is attempting to crawl now - but he still more or less just scoots. Brylee is still being a great big sister. My next post will be of my project over the past few weeks....the playset. Stay tuned.
