Swing Set Rebuild … Part One Demolition

This is our old swing set.  It wasn’t too sturdy.

See those cinderblocks on the right side.  The swing  set wasn’t even sitting on them anymore!  If my big guys decided to swing, the whole set would rock back and forth…. looking like the entire thing would tip at any moment.  I never let the neighborhood kids play on that thing….. it just was not safe!

So, we began the demolition!  Everything was coming apart to be sanded and rebuilt.

Even with a sling on his arm- Tiger Shark was a trooper!

Everything down and disassembled.
Stay tuned… next up is the building portion of the swing set.  We needed the neighbors to come help on that one.

What a big project. It's great that you have the boys to help. Mike had his dad help him put up our swingset last year.

Colby will be 3 next month. I am amazed at how much he has grown. He gained 7 pounds and grew 4 1/2 inches this past year. He is now 3 feet tall and 30 pounds! A skinny little guy. It's truly amazing what love and security can do!
