We are very, very close to being finished. The side that holds the swings isn't level and will need some adjusting before we can add the swings. Chris and I had to take yesterday off work to get a majority of it done or we'd still be putting it together in August. Over the past week we've had some neighbors help out so we decided to buy them some pizza this evening and let the kids play on what was finished. I'll get some better pictures of it tomorrow when we finish it up.

Literally! We had about 7 kids running around the backyard and sitting on that slide.
Thanks to Great Grandpa, Violet is getting a swing set. We staked it out last night in the one corner of the yard that we haven't landscaped. Based on this photo it looks like we have nothing back there but if you'd turn around it's a bit of a jungle. In fact that small evergreen caused us problems in figuring out the placement. When we planted that 2 years ago we thought we had it over to the left far enough.
Violet decided to take the directions from us and build it herself because we weren't moving fast enough.
