PLAYSET

I love garage sales.

We found this playset for a SCREAMING deal at a garage sale a couple of weekends ago, and the kids haven't stopped playing on it.

Brand new at Costco, this set runs about $1,300. We managed to pick it up for $350; the family purchased it two years ago, and then due to a military move (and transportation weight limits), they had to sell it. Four trips on my little 4x8' trailer later, I had this set up in my back yard. It's nice that it was already assembled; I think I only tightened 10 bolts to put it back together when I brought it in. The roof was a bit of work, though... I had to take it apart and bring it up piece-by-piece to get it on there.

Fun fun.

I thought so. We've wanted something like this for a while, and it's nice that we were able to get it at that price. We couldn't *build* one for that price!

I love our new toy, but I do wish we had some cousins that lived near us to come and play with the girls. I think Wyatt would enjoy the slide and I'm sure Noah is getting close to enjoying the swing set!!

p.s. Be honest now -- did you have your kids pose for this photo? They look too perfect to be photographed by chance!

haha... the only posing involved was telling my youngest to start climbing. She didn't know what I was saying, so I put her in front of the climbing wall, and she went up. Everything else was natural. :)
