A few weeks back, I found a swing set on Craig's list 4 blocks from where we live! It was meant to be - although the logistics of bringing it home was a little tricky. Thanks to my husband, Dad and most of all my friend Jen with the BIG truck we now have a swing set and a picnic table that were handcrafted by the Amish in Lancaster Pennsylvania -- all for $70!!!
We love our new yard! It is a space that we spend a majority of our time in along with Earl our Squirrel.
Earl is not shy and he can be quite intimidating - he has made our yard that much more exciting. I reassure Vivian that Earl does not eat little girls (about fifty times a day) ...she wants to believe me but it is hard for her. I don't blame her. Sometimes I think he is going to take a bite out of me!
My biggest pride and joy are these tree stumps left by the Tree Fairies. Vivian loves to balance and jump her way to the top - she is "KING OF THE CASTLE" - so she exclaims.This afternoon Ella and I practiced sun salutations on them. I could feel the tree's energy as I balanced myself.
I look forward to this weekend. We plan to build a fire pit and a fairy house.
