My friends ordered a new playset, with the notion that it would take an afternoon to put together. My daddy warned them that he had put together a Sears A-frame set years ago, that it was lots more work than anticipated and suggested they pay someone to do it. Abbie and Aiden's Daddy really wanted to do it, though. He found out the hard way that he should have listened to the older, wiser Daddy. After a few days of hard work, with others pitching in to help, the finished product is quite impressive and FUN! I got invited over for a playdate to try it out.
