Mommy's Turn

Last night the Munchkin and I had dinner and a visit from a friend's daughter while Daddy and our friend took their truck and snowmobile trailer down the road and picked up a surprise for the Munchkin - a new to us wooden play set that we got an awesome deal on! (because sometimes you ARE in the right place at the right time!!!)

The Munchkin calls it his new "playground". This weekend we are leveling it up, adding some handles, a slide and a new canopy, and probably putting some sealer on it. The turtle sandbox will move underneath with some mulch, and we will be good to go. I can't wait to see him climbing on it!

The Munchkin had no idea what Daddy was doing - until they got it home and he happened to look out the back window. He was ear to ear smiles the whole rest of the evening, and Daddy got a HUUUUGE hug when he came in the back door!

Tonight is Mommy's turn for a surprise - we are going HERE after dinner.
NOTE: For those who read too fast - that says going here AFTER dinner, not FOR dinner.

That is so neat, I love the way kids get so excited over things. Can't wait to see what it looks like with your additions.

Our Small Man calls our playset the "playground" as well, and would stay out there 24/7 if we let him.
