This is holidays??

Holidays so far haven't been very restful. We decided to build the kids a play structure. After many online plans and catalogues, and not finding the kit or the plans that seemed right for us, we went ahead and had a family meeting and designed our own plans.

So in the past 3 days, we've gone from this:

and we added this:

and we got THIS:

It still needs a LOT of sanding and we're staining the top and painting the bottom sort of rock/castle-ish. We've purchased rock-wall holds for the far right side - all 9' to the top of the railing. We've also left some space off the far left side and the back of the second landing in case we stumble upon a slide/cargo net/climbing rope/fireman's pole either used or cheap. Mica's already been cuddled up in the top reading a book and the kids have had friends over who think it's the coolest thing ever.

The kids are beyond thrilled.....and I am so sore I can barely move. In fact, if I don't get off this computer chair right now...I may never get up.
