The kids love to be outside, so I've been looking at play sets. Jon really wanted to build one, but when I priced all the additional things that go along with it (slide, swings, chains, bolts for swings, rock wall, monkey bars...), it was over $500 (not including the lumber)!!!
So I had been searching Craigslist for a bargain, and this week, I found this set for $150, which is less than the price of the slide!
Jon had to disassemble it and transport it here, then reassemble, level, and reinforce it, but it was well worth the price, as the kids have been playing, swinging, sliding, climbing, imagining, and having a GREAT time!
We pretty much spent the entire day outside playing, as the kids didn't want to do anything else. The dirt in the bathroom after bath time proved how much fun they had.
