Quality Friday:Grandparents Are The Best.*Updated*

Just the other day I wrote about how I now love hanging out at my parents and watching the kids play in the backyard.

Well, that must have been enough for my parents to add to the fun.

On Wednesday afternoon I was helping my mom with a project at her house when my dad came home and very excitedly showed me his new purchase.
A PLAYGROUND for their backyard.

And not just any playground, a Rainbow playground. And did I mention it's 15 x 16 feet?

Only the biggest and the best would do for his grandkids!
It got installed this morning, so of course, being the competitive child H is, he made me bring him over there right away so he could be the first to experience the new playset.

He loved it and so did I.
Thanks grandma and grandpa for such a fun toy at your house! I know all the kids are going to LOVE it.
*Update Saturday 4:30pm*

Here's a few more pictures from Saturday morning as well when cousin Michael was there too.

H bumped his head at home on a laundry basket of all things. What a bump!

H and Grandpa.

Michael, 5 years old.

Very nice slide/swing set for you and the grandchildren! I am sure seeing both of you using it brought back many memories whilst making new ones!

Can I come over to play??

What a treat to have your folks so nearby that you can enjoy playtime in their backyard.

What was at the bottom of the green watering can for H to be up to his armpits in it?
