We have a new addition in our backyard and it greatly (greatly) pleases the youngest member of our household.
Yep. Kenton’s first swing. We’d been on the lookout for one for a while, hoping to find a great deal on Craig’s List or at a local kid’s consignment store. However, while walking through Costco with Meme (Jason’s parents are Meme & Pepe), she spotted this one and declared she had to buy it. No argument here! Super-daddy got it up in about five minutes… with an observer in the distance.
The squeals of delight that come from this child while he is swinging (preferably high and fast… yikes!)… are so precious.
He loves it.
The only (major) bummer – the Dream has east/west exposure and so swinging is limited to the morning hours. There’s simply too much direct sun in the afternoon/evening – not to mention it’s getting to be “that time” of year in Arizona so it’s also too darn hot. It does cool down after the sun sets, but our little man is long lost in his own dreams by that point.
So, for the next few months, if you need us in the morning – we’ll be out on the back patio with a cup of coffee checking out this delighted face.
How about you? Anybody get a fun, easy project done this weekend?
