Of course said neice had to be entertained while the adults worked and she has quite the imagination. The slide was a turtle, a mountain, and a swimming pool at various times during the day. My daily exercise was accomplished chasing her around the yard with the imaginary hose, racing to the end of the one-acre yard as a unicorn, and performing a ballet in the living room.
Here are a few shots of the work in progress. By the time it was complete, it was too dark to shoot photos. So, I'll have to make another trip across the metroplex to get those action shots. Besides, we used imaginary paint to apply flowers to the slide and a flag at the top of the tree house. I think I'll take some real paint and a real flag and we can decorate her new playground for real.
And, one of my favorite pictures of the day. She just couldn't wait and had to try out the picnic table before everything was all done.
