(Shout out to Balynda for the title!)
Memorial Day weekend was hot. And you know you've got a great family when you mention buying a swing set for your kids and you want to put it together on everyone's day off. And it's going to be ninety five degrees. And it's going to take all day.
But everyone came anyway.
That is what's so great about family. And what's so great about all the people, family or not, that love my kids.
As of today, it's still not done.
The directions said for two adults, it would take 7-9 hours. We had four adults (plus random others that wandered in and out all day) and they spent about six hours on it. About an hour and half of that was spent re-doing the platform because someone that I'm married to read the directions wrong.
And by 5:00 everyone was beat.
The rest of the steps are small things Chris can do by himself: walls for the platform, arms for the swings, the climbing wall, the slide, etc. But I think he's still worn out from Monday and hasn't touched it since.
It was very anti-climactic for Ellie.
But when it's done, I'm sure it's going to be awesome.
