William's playground

Lately William has really been into going to the playground. Since it has been so hot out, it makes it harder to take him on a daily basis. The rare time of day that it is cooler is when the sports teams are playing so parking is scarce and the playground becomes way too crowded. We decided to get him his own swing set or as he prefers to call it "William's playground". We went with a smaller one since he is the only little one and also he still has the majority of the yard to run and play ball.

The good thing is we never have to leave home and we put it by a tree where we can get some decent shade for most of the day. I am also glad we can take potty breaks and get a cold drink when we need it. William is loving his new toy and it's a great way for him to get some of that boy-energy out. It really wears him out with all of that physical play so he sleeps very well at night (score!)

Dwayne and I put the swing set together and it was not as bad as I thought it would be. Of course there was that 30 minutes that was wasted trying to get the ladder rungs assembled. No matter how many times we tried, we just could not get the screws and nuts to connect. I then find a little bag of 4 screws so I decided to open them up. Good move~ turns out that the paper enclosed stated that the directions were not revised with the fact that you needed to use those specific screws and NOT the ones we struggled with for so long. You know Dwayne was rolling his eyes at me and will be talking about me for a long time to come since I was in charge of the instructions.

In the end, our boy is happy and so are we! :)

  3. Shelly, this is a goal of ours to buy the kids their very own PARK...LOL... play area! I hope William enjoys his.

    Hugs and Mocha,

  4. Oh my gosh, this is such a great idea to have your own little playground in the backyard! How fun is that!!!?? He is going to have hours and hours of fun with that - and yes, he will sleep GOOD at night - lol

  5. So cute! He looks so happy!

  6. What's the age range for playing on this?

    I would love to get one for the kids. I would rather a trampoline but dh thinks it's not safe and could cause injuries.

    I love that you have this in your yard and your son is enjoying it! I'm seeing picnics outside!
