Around Jimmy’s birthday, we purchased a new swingset for the backyard. This has been a big hit already, despite the fact that it isn’t finished.
A number of people have asked whether we got an iPad when that product was released. My reaction was, “That swingset is my iPad.” It’s about the same in terms of cost and it’s a platform for a lot of interesting new adventures for the family. It has no electronic components so far. I guess that’s the biggest difference.
Since this photo was taken, I’ve added a set of steps to the front. I hope to get the slide installed this weekend. We’ll see how that goes.
