An email arrived today, that made the girls' whole week. Actually, it may have made their whole year. You see, the email said that I needed to go to Toys R Us to pick up a package that Nani and Grumpa had shipped for the girls. This is what followed:
Paul set out the pieces of the fort before going back to study:
And then I got to work:
There was a struggle over the steering wheel as I was trying to fasten it in place:
I got this far on my own (or kind of on my own... since I had a lot of help!):
Paul came down from studying and squeezed the ladder and slide into place.
And it was time to play!
There's an area underneath for hiding:
A window for playing Rapunzel:
Two climbing walls on either side of it for our little climbers:
There was a competition over the slide:
Sadie climbed the wall about 50 times:
The sliding fun went on and on:
Then Mae decided to go back to playing in the dirt:
You can probably guess what Patrick was doing
(this was before he and Giraffe had their disagreement):
Mae tried to eat a pine cone. Chasing ensued:
And Sadie joined in the digging fun!
What a day!
