Santa gave Max and Sullivan this little model playset on Christmas morning. A note was attached explaining that he had commissioned this playset to be built for them, but they would need to wait until spring for the life size version.
Our very generous and talented friend, Matt, took my vague sketch of an idea and turned it into this...
|A little dinner entertainment watching Dad prep the space.|
Max couldn't believe that out of everyone in the world Santa hired his Uncle Matt to do the job. How convenient! And how cool that Uncle Matt knew Santa.
While Billy was digging up the grass he found a (large, disgusting) worm and put in a box for the boys. Max decided the worm should return to his home after watching it try to escape.
They were fascinated watching the worm burrow into the dirt.
The guys worked so fast the boys were able to enjoy their snacks on the bridge in just a couple days.
Finishing touches were added including a picnic bench underneath one of the towers and a pirate telescope in each "fort".
Don't mind the naked baby climbing the ladder. I cannot keep clothes on these boys in the summertime. They love to strip down. Many times the only thing they're wearing outside is a layer of sunscreen. :)
