Yard Candy!

This was an exciting week for the kids! 
On Tuesday- they came to set up our swingset!

We all had a hard time concentrating on school!

As soon as he was done and we were done the kids raced outside to check on our new "yard candy"!

They loved it!

Everyone had a smile on their face!

We put a little money down years ago and now we were finally able to get one! YAY!!

We have a small back yard so the swingset is tucked in rather close to the house! In fact I'm taking these pics from inside the house!

It seems like the kids like to be close anyways!
This is our third swingset over the last 27 years! 
WE never would have guessed we'd be doing this again! But we are and we are lovin it!!

Looks like great fun!!!!!

We had an almost identical playground (same company) the first time around, which we actually gave to a young teacher at our school several years ago~ a "you disassemble it and take it away and it's yours" kind of thing. Never would have thought we'd ever have use for it again! But, we've decided this time not to get another one. We're just make many trips to the park. :)

LOVE IT!!! We want to come over to play! Pretty please! :)

And I love that you are taking pics from inside the house. PERFECT! Just don't "accidentally" lock the doors. Ahem.

It looks wonderful And I can see that the children think it is wonderful also!!! Isn’t wonderful to still be enjoying our children all these years later. I’m so grateful to the LORD that I still have little ones to enjoy and big ones to watch as they grow up!!

Ooohhhhh....that's a wonderful blessing for your sweet kiddos. Hours and hours of fun times :)

Looks like we have the same set. It has been THE best investment for the kids. They live on it, even in the snow! And the tire swing? All time favorite. I would throw up if I went as fast as they do! Enjoy!!

It is amazing!!'s like having your very own park in your backyard. I have a feeling it will get very used and lots of love and fun play over the years. A good investment! :)

I like it! We have a small backyard as well and have tucked our swingset in a corner. The climbing thingies are so much fun for our little ones!

God bless you!

That's a really pretty set, and I'm sure the kids will have many happy hours there. I totally understand what you mean about - Who would have guessed we'd be doing this again! - I have those moments sometimes too! :)

Hey!! We have the same exact one!!
Only it's not as bright and colorful as yours anymore.
And we lost our "tent" on the top. That darn Kansas wind!

Love your family!!
