Baby H got a lovely toddler swing for his first birthday, but hadn’t been able to use it too much. See, it is meant to be hanging from something, and that something is typically a tree. But it has been raining so much here lately, and our yard stays wet for days and days after a big storm. So we really didn’t get to swing him much since no one wants to wade through mud to swing a little boy.
Hubby to the rescue with a DIY idea to build a swing set out of lumber that can stand on our patio and thus be available for any good weather days, no matter what the condition of our lawn is.
He did the bulk of the work, because he’s awesome and I’m not handy at all. He basically built two A-frames connected at the top and bottoms. I helped paint! We picked “Safety Yellow” as the color because yellow is Baby H’s favorite color. And yes, we know that because we have a ball pit in his room, and he only digs out and carries around the yellow balls.
Work in progress:
Now if it would only stop being so cold, we could enjoy this more often.
