When I started thinking about what to get Addison for her 2nd birthday, I knew quickly that a playset in the backyard would be perfect. The girl loves to be outside and throws a fit when she has to come in. It would also benefit Gingy. Gingy will be able to let her outside to play and take care of Landry. It's a lot of trouble to pack up both girls and head down to the park (only 1/2 mile from our house). This should make everybody happy (especially me).
So let the daunting task of putting the playset together begin. I looked online for months at various playsets and decided we wanted didn't want to spend a lot of money but enough to get a quality playset. I found one on Walmart.com but I had read the reviews and knew that it was going to take many hours to put it together.
My parents come in two weekends in a row to help us put it together. Before they got there Jordan and I unloaded the boxes and organized everything (1 hour). We put the playset together for 6 hours the first weekend and 4 the next. We are so thankful for my dad's help. He was amazing!!! I really mean it - amazing! Jordan and I would have been still putting it together on Addison's 3rd birthday. Thanks Dad!!! I told my dad that it was great quality time with the family and his response was "I could think a lot of other things to do to have quality family time."

My chill child
Addison just had to help. I just love that she had on her overalls while being handy.
I'll have the final pictures for you on another post! Hope you enjoy this Addison! Blood, sweat, and a lot of patience went into this.
