Feelin' Like Photos!

Here's the swingset in all of its completed glory!  No, this photo isn't the box top -- I took it this morning.  Sure is pretty!

Believe it or not, but Scott and I raised that left tower as it is in that picture.  By hand.  By ourselves.  Yes, we are He-Man and She-Ra.  Really, we are.

The master builder and all-around awesome guy, Scott.  Love that man!!

This is what happens when mommy sinks a screw -- right THROUGH the board.  D'oh!  I really am She-Ra, see?

When Violet meets static electricity -- who needs fancy gadgets when a plastic slide will do the trick?

My happy happy boy boy!

Aren't these just the cutest country kids you've ever seen?  Yeah, I thought so...

Side view with the monkey bars that neither children can do without assistance yet.  Note how nicely the slides coordinate with the dandelions.

What's this?  This isn't a swingset, is it?  Nope -- it's the foundation for the chicken coop.  We've managed to keep all 25 hens alive for a month, but they are quickly outgrowing the basement box/kiddie pool set-up.  Scott and I have learned the "Oh, no!  I fell out of my home and am now running around on the basement floor confused and lost!" squawk of the birds.  When we hear it, one of us says, "Oop!  Got a runner!" and we go find the escapee and put her back where she belongs.  I'm looking forward to them getting their own home.  Yep, I am.

That swing set looks like so much fun! Our little swingset that we bought at Sam's Club when my daughter was 2 is about to fall apart now. Kind of makes me sad.

After seeing your comment over at "My Little Life" {'I'm choking this out in my best Shatner, "My...kids..are......not....perfect...??? What???"'} I just HAD to sneak on over here and check you out!!

I'm so glad I did! I'm really enjoying reading through your posts! Me and my hub-o would LOVE to have a chicken coup one day! ^_^ And I LOVE the name Milo! {Just happens to be my nephews name!}

Anywho, newest follower here! Would love for you to stop by for a visit!

Think back to being a kid. Can you imagine getting something like this! I always wanted a tree house. Your kids must be so happy! (chickens too!)

Fantastic! My husband and a friend are building our playset this Saturday. I'm skeered.
