All in our big, back yard!

This post is a bit dated, but I wanted to share our new get away. Anna Jane received this swingset for her birthday in November. It includes a tire swing, two belt swings (each is rated to hold 300 lbs--so it is adult friendly!), a slide, climbing wall, picnic table, elevated playhouse, adult swing (like a porch swing) and monkey bars. It's hard to see some of the items in the picture due to the trees and the angle, but I still thought this was a great shot. In the foreground is the sandbox that Otis built the first summer we lived here. You can also see the birdfeeder that traveled with us from our old house (with a post painted a lovely Martha Stewart color!) We've managed to spend some quality time on this even in the cold weather. Can't wait to serve picnic lunches to Anna Jane and friends during the warmer weather. We've enjoyed swinging together on the bench swing. What a great place to hang out!

What a wonderful retreat! I hope B and I are able to join you for a picinic there at the Homestead Playground! I think oyster crackers and a drink would go great with swinging! :)
