Grandpa and Nana came over on Saturday morning to start the ridiculously tedious process of putting together our new swing set. Now, what you should know is that when Chris and I started talking about swing sets a month ago we BOTH decided that paying to it delivered and assembled would be the way to go. To us a couple hundred bucks is worth avoiding the loss of a weekend and the huge headache of putting it together ourselves. And then we found the swing set at Sams, super cute, big enough for our girls to use for years and very affordable. But they don't have assembly as an option. Damn. Well, we thought for sure some pieces would be put together and it would come at least partially assembled. Not a chance! I am not kidding people every board, bolt, screw and piece of plastic was separate. We could not believe it!
Anyway, we got started.
Avery also wanted to help sweep up our mess...
which apparently turned her into a witch!
Here is our progress after day one!
And I am one happy momma, knowing that once again I can open the door and send them out for hours of fresh air, imaginative play and exercise!
Next step...customize their little cottage to become the best mud kitchen ever!
