Under Construction

I haven't posted for a while because I've been waiting for these pictures:

We started construction on what Drew calls his "playground" on Saturday. Dan, my Uncle Terry, and our friend Andrew spent a good part of the day working on the playground despite the temperature being over 100 degrees! We also had help from our friends Pete and Charlie on Sunday. Then we continued adding the finishing touches Monday and Tuesday and now the kids are finally able to play on their play structure in their own backyard. Dan was joking about having mandatory play time each day for the kids since he had to work so hard to get that thing put together. From the looks on their faces I think they are quite pleased with it!

Looks great! Thinking about you as you gear up for tomorrow's appointment.

Sorry I haven't called, Andy's been away for a while and I'm up to my eyeballs in baby stuff.

Wish I could bring my brood over to play on your playset, it looks like soooo much fun, better than the park...
