MY OBSESSIVE HUBBY(But in a GOOD Way!)
First off, let me clarify that my adorable husband LOVES his grandkids!!! That said, he also loves building things for them. He's built toyboxes, bookshelves, dollhouses, a rocking horse, beds with drawers underneath, and there's more! In the spring of 2009, he decided to build the growing babes a swingset. And here's a picture of it!
Nice, eh? But then, in the spring of '10 he decided it needed a little something more...so, he added this platform/playhouse, which also has a green canvas roof that he stored in the shed for the winter. He also built a slanted walkway for the kids to climb. Here it is:
But, alas! It is now spring of '11, and he has been eyeing the playground and thinking it needs yet another addition! So, he is adding a second playhouse with a bridge leading to it, and on the other side of the second platform there is a rope climbing thingie. My hubby just delights in bringing joy to his grands. Tomorrow, cloudy or not, or even a bit drizzly, he will have them out there breaking it in. By the way, he JUST started this third addition last night and says it will be done, with the exception of the canvas roofs, by tonight. HE'S PRETTY AMAZING, DON'T YOU THINK?
Here's the rope climbing wall, which he fashioned with his own hands. How did he do that?
And I would be remiss if I didn't show you a picture of the supervisor!
