Yes lots of it. Www.theswitz.com look at the photo gallery. It's one heck of a party. I have yet to go there though.

Now just waiting for the snow to melt to add the swing tower and level it up. Crazy snow on wednesday.

Nice -oh so true about the older ones wanting Ipods, phones and you can't forget money...

I remember building my kids swingset - built it with the grandparents - between the two grandfathers neither one could figure out the directions. sold it on craigslist about two years back and now we have a trampoline... not certain that was such a wise idea now- whenver my 10 year old get on it I about get a coronary watching him. good times...

Yeah, the older ones want a tramp, seems like a quick way to the ER.

Weather broke and got r done today. It's like a grill there is a handful of extra parts , Chinese must have overpacked.... Lol

congrats on a job well done.

04-03-2011, 05:17 PM
Nice work. Looks like you have a large enough yard to allow for a trampoline as well,maybe even a nice size aboveground pool? Our yards were starting to look bare like yours with snow banks in sides/corners till yesterday. We now have nearl 10'' 's of fresh snow. GRRRRR.

congrats on a job well done.

I agree... nice job. Must live in a colder climate with the glass just starting to green.
