That's Not My Backyard . . .

Have you ever read those Usborne books titled "That's Not My . . . "? All my kids loved those books, and today looking at my backyard felt like one of those books.

10 years ago, Bo built a play structure that all the kids have played on ever since. It was an awesome place in our backyard, but over time, it began to get overly worn and much of the wood needed replacing. Bo had talked about re-building parts of it, but when we found a fantastic deal on a brand new set, we knew that was the right choice.

 The new set arrived in 5 boxes last week, and someone we knew was interested in taking our old one and fixing it up for their young son. So, today . . . our backyard began to look different.

 For 10 years, we looked out onto the large play structure. Today, there is nothing left but the sand pit. In the next month or so, we'll have an even larger play structure to take its place.

 It was a little bittersweet, but we know the kids will love the new structure and are confident they'll get plenty of play out of it.
