The New Swing Set

This weekend Tim and some great friends of ours (PJ, Fish and Mason) put together a new swing set for Frank. Originally we thought we would be using a smaller swing set that our friends Molly and Steve had given us before they moved to their farm in SW MN. Tim was all set to buy some new braces and lumber to update and stabilize the set that was sitting in our garage. Then two weeks ago our neighbors across the street decided to finally retire from doing daycare. They walked over and offered us anything we wanted to take from their yard. So, we got the car (from our last post), a slide for our porch, a motorcycle and a new larger swing set. We weren't initially sure that we wanted something this big, but it actually ended up making out backyard look so much better. It hides some of the bare spots and I think I'll be able to do some gardening around it. Enjoy the pics!

Frank swings for the first time!

Always holding a basketball.

I think we're going to attach the basketball hoop to the other side of the set and put some pavers in the ground so Frank can play outside.
