So, a couple of weeks ago a very lovely woman that we go to church with asked us if we would like this:
Some family members had left it in pieces in her barn, and it had been there about 10 years. We had been thinking about buying a swingset for Brianna and had even priced them at Lowe's. I probably don't have to tell most of you that outdoor "play yards" can be very expensive, so we thought we'd give this one a shot.
After hauling it home, it was like putting a puzzle together. We couldn't find any pics of it online to help us out, but we (Chris mostly) figured it out and got it set up. Then, he scrubbed it clean and we were surprised at how good it looks. And, of course, we are happy to reuse something in perfectly good condition instead of buying new.
We are incredibly grateful that this woman gifted it to us... I foresee it bringing many hours of fun and play to our future!
