Swing Set

We bought Little T a swing set this past weekend - boy people, they are expensive!!  We got one that has a little trampoline (she loves to jump), 2 swings, a slide, and a glider.  I wanted one of those real nice wooden ones but 500 bucks?  Not gonna happen!! 

Little T helped us put it together and she really enjoyed it.  The weather here for the past few days has been in the 80's but it is supposed to get back to the 40's this weekend.  We are enjoying it while we can!  She loves to be outside, picking up leaves, throwing them, putting leaves on her slide so they can slide down with her, putting them on her swings.  She has even brought her baby out to swing and slide!  We put her on the glider and pushed it and she giggled away.  When it slowed down we told her to push with her feet and she did!!  You would have thought she was eating chocolate with her laughing once she realized she could control the speed herself!  Then we put her on the swing...hmmm..she wasn't so sure about that.  I realized that the other swings she has been on has a front and back to it while hers is just a seat.  So I carefully put her on and began to give her some little pushes.  After a minute of "NONONO" she started to smile and then laugh.  Of course, as soon as she started to laugh she leaned forward and fell right off onto her belly!  I cracked up, the look of surprise on her face was just priceless.  She didn't cry at all, just got up, wiped herself off, yelled at the swing, and went about her business.  That's my girl!

Ok Daddy, I'll hold this part while you tighten that bolt!

Oh jeez Daddy, you can't tighten it?  Here, let me do it!

Now I gotta open this box of springs.  What?  You don't like me mooning you with my diaper? 

s4

Hey Daddy!!  I put some springs here and I'm going to test them out for ya!

Hmmm....Momma.....I'm not too sure about this!  Are you sure it's safe?

Momma!!  You were right!  This is fun!

This is just a sweet picture I took of Little T.  It's in our living room and I used natural lighting.

I've been thinking about getting Katie a swingset...she loves the neighbor's and she needs one for her yard!

Our back yard is postage stamp sized, so too small for a jungle gym (which te inlaws wanted to buy). Instead I convinced them to buy us some of those playground-grade foam squares in bright blue and green to cover the cement floor of our screened-in sunporch (its "outdoors," but the rain does not come in through the screens). They also bought us a bunch of Litt.le Tyk.es play stuff - a slide, picnic table, play house, and we have been slowly putting it all together, much to Lil Pumpkin's delight!

You're right about the weather warmup - right now LP is at the playground, mid-day, with her Daddy, taking advantage of the 60-degree weather where we live ;o)

Thanks for wanting to be on my blog roll - I am thrilled to add some China-adopt families to it, and enjoy reading about your little one, too (esp. since she is "heart baby" like ours).
