The Play Fort

Well this weekend was most productive.
Alan finished the roof - with me on top putting the last two pieces on! Then he put up two of the sides (with Xander's help!)


Then up went the rungs for the ladder

this had a trap door on it too so the kids don't fall out!

and finally - Xander waiting so patiently
- the slide was bolted in place!

wheee!

He had quite a few goes and just loves it.
Climbing up the ladder, going down the slide!


All it needs now is a swing

the swing will hang from this side from the beam.

and when the kids are a bit bigger, Alan will put the climbing holes on.

Esmee had a little slide but i was holding her so couldn't get a photo - next time!
