Swingset - Day 1

Yesterday was day 1 of the swingset assembly project. By day 1, I mean day 1 of actually assembling the swingset. We spent one evening sorting all of the bolts, nuts, screws, hex bolts, washers, lock washers and upteen million other pieces of hardware. We spent another evening sorting all of the lumber, labeling and grouping the pieces and stacking them into groups. Then, we spent an evening putting together the kid's size picnic table that came with the swingset.

So, yesterday was Darren's "Saturday" so we went full force on assembly (after his dentist appointment and a quick trip to the grocery store, park, library and Noodle's for lunch).

See how happy Darren is? Can you see him behind the pile of wood? Trust me, he is excited!!!

Progress at the end of day 1. You can't really see it, but the floor is there...that alone was about 100 screws!!!

We put out a tub of water for Ella to play in. She was getting a scoop of water and going over to the swingset and pouring it on one of the legs. Maybe watering it in hopes that it grows faster?

  1. That's awesome! I feel your pain, the first picture is what our backyard looked like last week. Why do they have to make them so darn complicated??
