Saturday my youngest explained to Grandpa that his ninja obstacle course wasn't quite challenging enough anymore. He wanted a rope to climb, but Grandpa's trees are all pines - none have those spreading branches that are so necessary for ropes and such.
 So Grandpa cut down a small tree with the chainsaw. And then bolted/tied it across two other trees!

 Then all the cousins showed up, right on time...
And tree swinging ~
We are so lucky to have my dad!

  1. I so love that play house. I build one when I was 14 in my backyard. LOL they are fun to have (at any age.) The rope swings for the ninja and apprentices look neat!

  2. Charity you've got to come visit us, we're ready whenever you are!

  3. my son's best toy was a 40' length of rope my dad gave him. and re the abuse post, yes we are kin! :) sixth sense can be trusted!

  4. I love your dad! Reminds me of the time my husband and his dad built a swing set in our yard because "those damn kits are too small". LOL. I didn't realize there was a tallest swing set competition. Silly me.

About Me

My photo
For many years I was a mechanical engineer by day, a house renovator by night, and a single mom. I previously built a tiny house on Tybee Island that I sold in 2015. Then I lost my day job, met Prince Charming, and now work full time demolishing (fixing) his lake house. ;) Stop by for the house stuff, stay for the never-ending disasters, pianos falling out of the sky, floods, threats of financial ruin, & panic attacks. It's like house flipping meets the zombie apocalypse! with lots of kids!
