Our new swingset!

I don't think these pictures do the sheer size of this swingset justice! The swing uprirghts are 6"x6"x16' posts! 16 feet across and the monkey bars are 12 feet long...making it a total of 28 feet long....and the monkey bars are 7 feet in the air. The kids have played on it pretty much nonstop since DH took the braces off and the cement dried. I am sure that they will have years of enjoyment on it. Our plan for the future...hopefully next summer...is to add on a platform/tower on the side of the monkey bars and then put a platform around the tree next to it and a sandbox underneath...again that is future plans. And we still need to put a tire swing on in between the two swings but we have to special order it from somewhere.
