So…dreams do come true! The lower yard is done—not without a few setbacks, like a deteriorating retaining wall, but completed and perfectly lovely. Thank you to Pacific Playground, Doug Gourley, and his great crew headed by Marlon Andrade for their time, effort, and creative input. Suppose they do tree houses? The children are thrilled with the new and unique area to explore from the padded turf to the mini climbing wall—what’s up next?
We are currently looking at a company that uses sustainably harvested wood to construct play things that can be used outside. The product line is called “Outlast,” meaning super durable, and they make everything from large, wooden blocks to a marvelous waterfall table that seems like good idea for the deck! I’m sure you will hear about it from your children! New beginnings all around: new yard, new ideas, new school year approaching, and new children coming up fast.
