Simple Sunday – Thank You Craig’s List!

Late last week we went and looked at it.  Today it arrived.  We have been wanted to get one of these for the longest time but we have just not found one in our price range that was close by.  The people selling it threw in free home delivery without us even asking.

Today was the perfect day for it as the sun was shining and we had the day free to piece it back together.  The boys have already taken to playing Pirates on it and I have a feeling there will be many great memories made over the years on our new outdoor big toy.

  1. Perfect! We’ve found a couple of play structures online (up here, we use Kijiji) – it works out great for everyone.

      I had to check out Kijiji (I have a hard time typing that!). We are happy with the big toy. During removal and transit a couple pieces of the wood broke or were damaged so after a quick run to Home Depot, we can get the monkey bars and swings installed. Summers of fun!

  2. verty cool – wish I were young again!

  3. Score!! We got one of craigslist a couple of years ago too and it has been great… just in time for summer fun!

      I think it will serve us well for several years to come – one of the reasons we decided to fork out so much cash. Especially with the boys’ imaginations, they can find plenty of uses for it.

    Perfect timing!

      How right you are! I know it is only spring and we in the PNW are experiencing a crazy heat wave (it has been in the 80’s) but it feels like summer when I look outside at that toy at the foot of our lawn.

    WOW!!!!! I hope you’ll have lots of fun with this! 🙂

      I know, it is pretty huge! Cody told me it looks like our lawn is a park and I would have to agree with him. Plenty of fun over at our house for many summers to come.
