This swingset is fabulous, but at $1,600 it was a bit out of our budget. So, when Hubby heard a friend at work had a swingset to get rid of, we went to look at it. This friend is a builder and designed it himself. We bought it for $350 and enlisted the help of my dad (a former builder) and my brother to help Hubby haul it to our house and put it back together. This is how it looks in our yard.
You can't see it, but there are monkey bars and a slide on the backside, and a climbing wall on the left. This is how it looks from my porch. And here is the seperate swingset.
It took the guys about 11 hours to disassemble, transport and reassemble everything. They did a fabulous job. There isn't much room left in my yard, but it's worth it if it keeps the kids busy and happy. And the $350 was whole lot better than $1,600. Now, we just need to restain it.
We also decided to have our Mother's Day celebration for lunch that day since the entire family was here. We had BBQ Pork Sandwiches for lunch and celebrated my awesome mom.
It was a great Mother's Day weekend. What about you? Did you have a good weekend?
