Alex's New Playset
Some said it couldn't be done...put together Alex's new playset in "two evenings," as predicted by Dad (Papa to Alex). Well, we were going to try. And in true Motter style, it was done! However, the weather did not wish to cooperate. We started off the project in balmy 80 degree weather. Then the lightning and thunder came, followed by a downpour (see first pic). It was when it started to HAIL that we decided to take a break for supper. We came back to pea sized hail all over. This didn't stop us. We got more done and worked until dark. Day 2 brought 40 degrees and 30 mph wind (a 40 degree temp drop from the day before). We had on our gloves and hats. And also had the help of Alex. We got the tower together shortly before dark and then finished the swing beam in the dark. But we did it....in 2 days! Thanks to Mom, Dad and Toby for helping....I couldn't have done it without you! :)
