Amy, Dylan And Friends
My husband and I have been plotting a nice surprise for our children for a few weeks now! My husband really should get the credit for this wonderful idea as it was initially him that suggested it! We firstly searched the internet for ideas and we could not believe the prices some of these companies were charging! Talk about expensive! We discussed various options with a carpenter friend of ours and selected what style swing set we would like.
A few days later I ordered the swing attachments and the slide from a local company and arranged for them to be delivered as soon as possible. Our friend then began to work on this project at his home; cutting the timbers to size...etc. Then on Friday he came out early in the morning to begin. Our children knew what the surprise was at this stage, as it would have been pretty hard to keep that secret when it was being built right in our garden! Our nephew helped to construct the swing set as he is an apprentice carpenter; that ensured the job was finished that very day!
Our Nutty Boy!
Since then lots of fun has been had! Dylan loves the slide and zooms down it as fast as he can go! Amy has been having lots of fun on it too and she cannot wait until Meg is big enough to be able to sit and swing in her baby seat!
