Home Improvements

We spent the day doing home improvements. Well, actually, they were yard improvements since they all took place outside of the house which is exactly where we wanted to be on such a gorgeous day.  I weeded the garden (oh,joy) and Chris and the boys worked on adding a  slide to the tree fort.  The slide serves two purposes: 1) to get down from the tree fort quickly and 2) to allow the little kids to get up in the tree fort without dragging out the step ladder.  In addition to the new slide, we also hung a new swing in the yard as well.  It's turning into quite the park back there :-)

First, we had to disassemble the picnic table because it was falling apart.  The wood is still good though, so Chris used it to make some decking for the new slide platform on the tree fort.

Apparently all this work really wore out Aidan & Marcus!
Molly had to test out the new swing.  After church today, most of the kids dashed into the backyard to go for a swing.  Isn't it funny how something as simple as a swing can be so much fun!
