One day last week, in a span of about 3 hours, our backyard went from this:
MC got a cool, custom-built play set or "playground" as she calls it. (Local friends, if you are in the market for a play set, click that link - we highly recommend Mark and his team. We had a great experience working with them!)
It has two swings, a slide, a rock-climbing wall, and a two-story clubhouse.
We have already spent hours upon hours playing on it, and we've had several friends over to check it out. It is a big hit with the almost-three crowd. And, as you can see, it appeals to the four-legged crowd as well.
