Better late than never.....


"Better late than never...."

I feel like that is becoming my daily life motto. I have so many things that I want to get done....and no matter how much we actually do get done....I feel like we cannot seem to catch up. I have officially diagnosed myself this morning as nesting. But that's a whole 'nother post for a whole 'nother day.

Today....I am posting about the swing set that we Geoff has finally put together and is ready to go!!

If you'll remember....we got this swing set for Parker back in September....for her 2nd birthday.

Only...we didn't really 'get' it until November due to our schedules and then the rainy weather. (there I go with my excuses again).

Then one thing after another....

Fast-forward to December 19th....and Geoff begins construction.....



Then...onto Monday, December 21. He spent all morning and part of the afternoon working on it again.....

Then Tuesday, December 22.....almost finished!!

Parker was supervising with the waterhose.

Not really....but I wanted to show a picture of her and her face....with M&M residue all around her mouth....they're potty training rewards, you know.....

But on this day....Parker did get to at least climb on the 'fort' part....





And the fourth and final day....yesterday. Phil and Kristin came over (thanks guys!) so that the guys could put a few finishing touches on the swing set (Geoff needed help lifting and holding and blablabla...stuff I was useful for)...and then the girls could play!


And here it is....complete!!!

I am so proud of Geoff for his hard work! That may sound corny....but he put in quite a few hours, and with the exception of just a couple of hours yesterday....he did it alone!

And then here are just a few of the girls enjoying the swings!


And yes.....that is M&M residue all around her mouth....again. ;)
