Swing Set

For his second birthday, Jackson got the "ultimate" present from his Granny ToTo ... A GIANT SWING SET!  The only problem was ... Justin needed help to build the monster!  Fortunately, Jax was none the wiser ... and he basically got to relive his birthday again this weekend when his Uncle Charlie and Mr. Bill came over to help Justin build it.

At the end of day one:  Justin and Charlie had completed the basic structure.  Somehow, it still looked a little lonely out in our backyard.

Early Saturday morning, Mr. Bill came over ... and the men got going again!

And kept going ...

Until it was almost done!

After about 14 hours of hard labor in the scorching heat ... the masterpiece was complete!  Justin and I waited until evening to show Jackson so that he wouldn't get overheated in his Mehta cast.  He was quite the happy camper.

Naturally, the very top tier is Jackson's favorite spot to play.

Which makes Mommy and NeNe a little nervous.  But, "boys will be boys."
Or so they say.

... so I had better get used to it ...

... because my house it full of them ...

AND I wouldn't have it any other way!

Jackson had a wonderful evening getting to know his new "house" as he calls it.  We are so thankful to Granny ToTo for getting Jax (and Oliver) this amazing birthday swing set ... and also to Justin, Charlie, and Bill for constructing it.  You made one little fella very happy!

As for this one, he'll come around!

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship Summer!
