For Grandma

A couple of weeks ago we were finally able to put up a new play structure in place of the old one we had torn down two years ago. Remember how sad Ian looked? But he's thrilled now to have a new sturdy play set with an actual working ladder he can climb up. Not to mention that he now has a brother he can share it with! Grandma Bonnie in NY has requested pictures so these are for you Grandma!

The whole set... It has two covered areas which are perfect for hiding out or enjoying lunch. We are still working on getting a ground cover and making it look a little more tidy. In the meantime, we are hoping the grass returns since a lot of it has been eaten by our chickens when they had full backyard access.

Many important conversations go on in here.

Lots of strategizing and planning... especially over apple slices.

Not to mention, silly looks at mom who keeps taking their picture.

Half-eaten apples with tiny two-year-old teeth marks are left behind in various corners.

And even Henry the cat is enjoying new places to sun himself and sleep.

Now, if only the rain would let up just a little so we can go out and play on it again...

Thanks for the pictures. The boys are as cute/handsome as they were in their last photos. I am happy to see Sawyer now has his "puddle buster" boots like his big brother. Love, Grandpa Fred and Grandma Bonnie.

This will be so much fun for them, for years to come. Henry is such a dare devil! :p

Wow! What a great place to play! And I love how the cat seems at home there too!
