Thankful Thursday!!

Posted by Leah
Welcome again to Thankful Thursday!! I hope you're having a great day so far.  I have been trying to come up with something with my family to fit the theme Man/Boy.  I didn't know what to try for hubby and son to do.  I had a difficult time with hubby's schedule.  Then I thought of something that they did together with Grandpa and that was build a play yard together.  Son says it's Dad's and his hangout.  Then he added Grandpa can use it anytime.  He did add in there however that he must hang out in the little house at the top.  We have had challenges with bees around it and are in process of getting rid of them.  We have some traps set so we'll see how the progress goes with that being said.

I must show you the final picture of the play yard.  Then will go into details about it.  Here is the play yard final picture.

I must say that Grandpa Steve had a great deal into this.  We were given this play yard from a neighbor of ours.  Her children had played with it and have since grown and don't use it now; she offered it to us.  We had to get it out of there and get it set up.  When we finally had the time to get it we discovered that it was gone already.  I must say that it didn't take us too long to figure out where it had gone to when we figured out what it looked like apart.  Grandpa Steve had taken it to his house and painted it and replaced the wood that needed replacing.  He even added on a swing that wasn't on here.  He put the tarp on with Gramma.  I was watching son climb and slide on the slide at that time.  He also was swinging on the swing too.  He needed some help, but I think with practice he'll get the hang of the swing.  I have a video to show the progress of the play yard being built.  I have to say thank you so much to Grandpa Steve!!!!

It is nice to have a handy man around the house. Good to see pictures as the proof that they are still out there! Just kidding, my hubbie is not the handy I am super jealous. Your children are going to love it and make cherished memories! Congrats on the "new" playground!
