When it's not raining...


The final piece of the backyard makeover was installed this week. A few weeks ago, Trip checked out some forts. There is a great local company that comes to your home and builds the fort on your property. The quality of the fort and swingset is incredible.
As Jackson gets older we can change or add to the fort. I think it would be fun to have a mini rock wall or some monkey bars to burn some energy. But for now, the ladder, slide and swings are perfect.
You'll notice in the first picture that the swingset has a regular swing and Jackson's toddler swing {above}. It was such a delight for me to get him going in his and then hop onto the swing next to him. When he would slow down I would jump out of the swing and give him a few more pushes to keep him swinging. Every time I jumped out of the swing, Jackson would giggle uncontrollablly. "Again! Again!" So, I would get going in the swing "again!" and then jump. I must have done it 10x before I cried "uncle!"  I am confident that if anyone was watching us play they would have taken us to the funny farm.
