For Eli and Landon's birthday, ALL of the grandparents (grandpa-my dad, grammy-my mom, grampy-mike, nemo-Dustin's mom, and papa-Dustin's dad) went in together to get the boys a swingset. I may have mentioned before their love of the outdoors. We spend a LOT of time in our backyard, so this was just the perfect gift for us.
It was delivered to the wal-mart here and Dustin went and picked up all 300 pounds of it. He got it home and we immediately went to work assembling it. It took us about 4 seconds to realize that we would not be making progress with Eli and Landon around. So Dustin got as much done as he could and then we really hit it hard after the boys were asleep. As in...Dustin kept me out there until almost 1:00 in the morning, at which point in time I gave up and went to bed.
Dustin finished it the next morning and we immedately had our first picnic outside. We have been enjoying it ever since!
Thank you so much to all of our parents who did this for us!
