Grandkids and budgets to not mix. Budgets always fall a poor second to the kids. :laughing:

Nice job overall. They should enjoy that one for many years to come.

Now tell me, how did you manage to hide it from them until Christmas?

Thanks Johnnie. The answer to that is geography. The closest grandchild is an hour away. Three are 3 hours away. Two more are across the country in Utah. I can't wait to see them climbing all over it.

That looks so nice, looks like a lot of fun will be had there.

My wife really wants me to do that for our grandkids, but I just tell her that if it takes me two years to build the kitchen cabinets the grandkids will be teenagers before I finish the playground so why bother starting.

Thanks Bret and Carvel. I'm pretty slow on projects too. I'm surprised it only took a month. Whenever someone asks me to make something, I'll start my agreement by saying, "you know, I'm pretty slow." Lol.
