As anyone who lives in Michigan can attest, this past Saturday convinced us Spring has arrived - and gave us hope that someday warmer, dryer weather will appear. Then Sunday happened, and the weather was surely consistent with Michigan Spring Weather...a mix of rain, sleet, and snow with wet-cold written all over it. bummer.
So what day do you suppose the FarM picked to install a swingset? Sunday! Of Course!
T, the girls' and I drove over to the FarM about 11 (we missed church because the girls' have colds...this weather SO helped...not...) and cooked out for lunch.
At least it didn't rain during while we were cooking...
Improvisation - the name of the game. Good thing that anything tastes good over an open fire. We made Tonkas (aka Hobo Pies) with tomato sauce, seasoned ground beef, and the occasional string cheese standin for real cheese (which i forgot in the fridge at home). And accompanied this hunky sandwich with homemade AppleSauce.
I didn't find the PAM until after the first Tonka was toasted. It takes a little bit to get into the swing of camping again, gimme a break.
It didn't matter too much, soon the swingset arrived. For Christmas Opa and Oma bought the girls' swingset stuff. We are super excited to have this out there for them. They have been such troopers this winter, hanging out while we feed and clean.
So pretty! The slide is still coming, as well as a climbing wall for the far side, some rings for the middle, and a rope climbing net (or something) for the near end. But the girls (and mommy and daddy) now have swings and steps! And with a swingset this size, they'll grow into it for years!
