Our Swing Set!!!

The day has finally arrived! For several months, we have been selling the boys clothes and other baby stuff through Our Memorabilia blog. We have raised over $1,000 towards the purchase of the boys' swing set. To all of you that gave us something we were able to resell, thank you very much because you have helped us purchase our swing set!

We ordered our swing set it arrived in many pieces. Over the next couple weeks, Daddy worked during nap time and after the boys went to bed to put the swing set together all by himself. Yep, that's right... all by himself!! Daddy stays home by himself with the boys three days a week and he used nap time and after the boys went to bed to focus on the swing set. I should also mention that nap time is from 12:30-3pm each day and it was pushing 100 degrees on the days when he was working on this swing set. His hard work finally paid off and our swing set is all put together.

Here are some pics over the course of this project... .
This is how she arrived...
Daddy starts his project with Murray's help, of course...
Daddy very pleased to see that I am busy taking photographs...
More of the starting phase....
The structure starts to take shape....

After Daddy started putting the swing set together, he realized that they did not ship the slides. Here is Daddy showing off the 'finished' product. The only thing left is to attach the slides when they arrive.
Super Daddy!!! He should really have a cape...

Yahoo... the slides are here! Here is the finished swing set...
The boys are still a little too young to really enjoy the swing set. But, I am confident that over the next few years, they will spend a lot of time out here! Thank you again to everyone that gave us items to sell and to those that purchased some of Our Memorabilia. Most of all, thank you to Daddy for putting this together for us!!!

Take care,

  2. Wow... I hope I raise enough money through our sell to get one like that. It's awesome! Again, thanks for the great idea on the blog-sale. It's also such a great way to earmark money for a special something. (Amanda from twinsale.blogspot.com and txtwins.blogspot.com)
