Front Yard Fun

Look me in the eye and tell me those aren't the three happiest faces on the Internet today.

That's right, you cant. {Well, I'm sure you could if you looked hard enough, but allow me to make my point.} They aren't just happy because of their world-class mother, either. They have yet another fantastic reason to smile and a couple of dudes constructed it in my front yard yesterday:

Our tired old swing set left on the back of a truck last Friday, under the ruse that it was off to be repaired. In reality, the old thing was done and might not have lasted through another birthday party. Now, however, the Bauer Bunch and friends can swing in style. This is Christmas and birthday and all of 2014's other gift-giving holidays rolled into one, thanks to Nana and Grampa. Owen started to tear up when we introduced it as Nathan's early birthday present, so we quickly switched gears {with a wink and a nod in the direction of my oldest}. This mammoth of a playground has been creating lots of smiles over the past 24 hours, and we're just getting started. Obviously, it makes for pretty fantastic photos, as well. I think I've surpassed my limit on calling this post a Wordless Wednesday, but the photos, they are plentiful:

Owen had to get expert coaching before figuring out the rock wall.
He's got it now, y'all.

The first of many snackies.

We took a break to cool off on the couch, let Nora down a bottle, and let Mama load these photos. Now they're tugging my leg for round two and it appears Daddy has returned home from work and has turned on the hose. Who knows what shenanigans will abound, but I know this new playground will be a highlight, today and on many more sunny days to come. This is the time of year for family fun and wearing your kids out as much as possible. Bring it on, summer. And now, I'm off!

Happy Hump Day, y'all.

Thank you, girls! :) It's been a blast to have at home. And Jamie, thank you for noticing - I LOVE my front door. It was the same maroon as the shutters and then I saw a photo of a yellow door in a magazine and went for it. It doesn't match anything else out there, but it still works somehow. :)
