Now if we had a fence...


I think we're actually going to go buy a swing set today. We've always wanted to build our own, but we finally decided that if we waited for that, we'd never actually have one until the kids were in high school.

The one in the picture is what we're wanting. It's from Wal-mart, and we're setting it up ourselves, so we'll see how that goes. I just hope it's sturdy enough to get our kids to junior high.

One slight problem is the rolling hills of our back yard. It looks as if some ancient tribe of druidic gophers had a thriving population; complete with cairns and quarries. It's all gone to grass now, but the archaeological evidence is still there. It'll be interesting to see how it all ends up, and I'll show you pictures.

Won't be the first swing set that's been there and as for the gopher holes, yep, they are a pain.

I wish they made these things for adults. They look like great fun!

Your yard sounds magical. Looking forward to seeing the pics!

We built one when our older kids were young. It was fun! Your kids will love it.

I'm certain you'll find a way to get it level. I know the kids are going to have a blast on their new swing set. I can't wait to see the pics.
