Back Yard Playground

Dale and I have been talking for some time about getting a playground for the back yard. We've gone back and forth, questioning whether we would be in this house long enough for it to be worth it (because we don't want to go through the struggle of moving it on a year!). We've decided, though, that we love our location, and probably don't need to move until either a) we decide to have another child, and said child outgrows our current nursery or b) we decide to move into Chapel Hill's school district.

Since neither of those things are in our foreseeable future, and probably won't be for another 2 to 3 years, we bit the bullet and got a playground. And I can tell you that the look on Ivie's face as she played with it for the first time this past week made it entirely worth it...

Now, of course, the week that it gets delivered is the coldest week we've had all winter. But that didn't stop us. Below are some of the pics from our first outing. As I type, though, it's snowing sideways outside, so I guess more fun on the playground will have to wait for a few days... But it sure looks pretty in white! The good news is that I think Ivie will have enough to keep her busy learning how to make snow balls instead of swinging and sliding...
