The swingset is coming down!

We have a swingset in our backyard that came with the house. It would make us so happy if we knew that real kids -- i.e. not me and Matt -- were enjoying this swingset. I called some charitable organizations in the area but no one wanted it (maybe for liability issues, who knows?)

It's a really nice swingset, it just happens to be standing on the site of our future vegetable garden and must come down. After a year with the "super swingset", Matt and I decided we must part ways and move on with our lives.

Well, I am happy to announce that it will have a new home on Chicago's north side! After putting up the notice at work, 3 different people wanted it --and who wouldn't want a free swingset?!

After we "sealed the deal", Matt and my grandpa didn't waste any time starting to dismantle it on Sunday after Brunch. Only after they tore down the swing part and made a mess, they realized they didn't have the proper tools to take it apart completely -- which really is not a shock since all the tools we have around here amount to a hammer and a few screwdrivers!
