countdown to stitches

Well, the boy’s playground is up and in action. The only things missing are the rock wall bits and the tic-tac-toe game in the clubhouse. He’s already a master at climbing the ladder and really seems to like it.

It’s a Gorilla Playset Congo Outing from Costco Online. It’s very similar to the Congo Outing III, but has a glider and some different clubhouse toys and no rope ladder arm. We replaced the belt swing with a toddler swing for now. B also added two boards to make a clubhouse wall above the rock wall. It was just too much wide open space for my nerves. When Liam is a little bigger and less likely to walk off the platform without looking we can take them down. B had this put together in about 10 hours, mostly piecemeal – on Sunday afternoon and an hour or two after work for a few days. It’s a really nice playset. The cedar is great, the pieces were well labeled, and the instructions clear. 

I took Liam an afternoon to figure out how to climb the ladder unassisted. It’s unnerving to watch and I hope the mulch provides good impact absorption. I’m trying not to hover…
