Backyard fun!

Chris's parents were here over the weekend and they bought a swing set for the kids! Chris and his dad put it together Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

The kids enjoyed playing in the box that is came in while it was being built

I found out that Lily is now too big for the Bumbo seat because she can wiggle herself out of it, so she spent a lot of time being held or sitting on the deck
Sean and Eleanor checking the instructions while Daddy and Papa put together the slide
Chloe getting ready to go down the slide!

I let Sean use my camera and he took these two pictures...

Since Chris's dad brought his truck we went ahead and got a little pool for the kids over the weekend. In these next few pictures you will also be able to see the whole swing set all finished!


  1. What an awesome backyard! You guys won't need to go anywhere!

  2. Wheee! a swing set! What a blessing!

  3. Sweeeeeeet! The kids are going to have a blast with that set! That was a nice gift. And big boxes are fun in themselves, I remember playing in my fair share as a kid. Oh! Do you remember that time at Biblefest at the festival,I forget what we called it, but anyway, that time where the adults put together a cardboard tunnel to crawl through on the stage? And then there was the cardboard box jail, that you had to say a verse to get out of. Those may have been different years, but all those memories just came rushing in.

  4. I am so happy for your backyard and your swingset! You will get lots of mileage out of both!
