God took 7 days to create the entire world.
It takes us...with the help of grandparents... 4 days, just to build a playset.
Mr. Genius' parents came to visit this past weekend.
So Mr. Genius thought he would enlist his dad to help him build a playset that we bought the weekend before.
Thinking it would just take Saturday afternoon and maybe a little bit of Sunday afternoon to finish it.
Boy were we wrong.
The men started around 9 am on Saturday.
It was the perfect putting a playset up weather...cold and rainy and of course...windy.
Sorry paw-paw. I hope you didn't get sick.
Wild Man and Romeo wanted to help out so bad but it was too cold even for them.
By 4 o'clock on Saturday they finished this much.
They got to page 20 something out of 54.
Sunday they got up to page 48 when Mr. Genius realized that there were some bolts or screws or something that is important, missing.
Soooooo we didn't get it done on Sunday.
Mr. Genius' parents flew back to TN and over Monday and Tuesday when he had a break he was working on it.
Who knew that a premade playset would be so time consuming?!
Finally last night it was finished!!
So Nana and Paw-paw, here is the finished product.
Of course Romeo likes it because Wild Man likes it.
All weekend I saw little faces peaking out and watching the construction of the new playset. As soon as my boys got on..it was free game. To my boys delight we now have the playset/backyard that everyone wants to play at...that is til someone else decides to build a new one.
It is hard to tell from the picture but there are 3 levels to the tower. Wild Man calls the top part, the sky tower.
When he wants to play in the playset he asks if he can play in the sky. :)
Tomorrow night I am flying to TN! BY...MY... SELF!!!
Hopefully out of habit I won't ask perfect strangers if they need to go potty. *fingers crossed*
I am going to a cousin's wedding and getting to spend some alone time with my mom.
Which really means there will be shopping and decorating!
So thank you again Nana and Paw-paw! If you guys didn't help I am pretty sure Mr. Genius would still be out there working on putting all those sticks together through to next weekend.
