The Big Reveal!

Here it is, our finished project, ER's new playscape! She was so excited to see it completed and kept hugging Daddy and saying, "I love it!" She climbed right up and tried out the slide.
This is our first big project, as former apartment dwellers, for years we never had to do much more than change a few lights. We started work a week ago yesterday, when my parents and MIL Norma and Ray came over the help with some heavy lifting. Brad worked hard each night attaching railings and on Friday, Norma and Ray came back over to help add the roof.
Thank you to our family for their help and of course a big thank you to Brad for working so hard on it! This past week was a little stressful with Brad working all day at the lab and then coming home to work more, but it was all worth it to hear ER's little squeals of happiness! I know we're going to get a lot of use out of it this summer!

Wow, that looks amazing. Brad did a great job. Wish we had room for something like that, but really small yards here. Enjoy!

How fun! Sometime the sweetest reward comes from the hardest work. Tell Brad, KUDOS! He deserves a World's Greatest Dad mug :-)
