Swingset

Swingset

As an early birthday present to the boys and mostly as some easy entertainment for Sara’s kids while they visit, Steve and I went and bought a DIY swingset kit from Home Depot.  It claimed it was an hour long kit but it ended up taking most of the day on Sunday.  The back of the box listed the lumber that was needed but left off two pieces and the kit itself was missing some critical parts.  So most of the time was spent running around the city and between stores to get all the pieces before we could start assembling.  Despite the headaches, the set turned out perfect.  It’s just a simple A-frame set but we can fit three swings.  The boys LOVE it.

Wrecking Balls

Yesterday we tried out the doorway swing on the boys.  They barely fit into the little seat.  Steve and Grandma had to stuff in one of their snowsuits in order for them to fill the area.  They both really seemed to enjoy the swing though.  Steve called them wrecking balls.

Here are some videos too:

We’re still trying to figure out the video feature on our new camera.
