Siding and painting trimWe moved the garage near it's final location so we could put the siding on it. It was still very heavy even though it lacked a roof and siding... Here Cathy works on painting the door trim.

Checking things outWilliam sits at the top of the newly-placed ladder. As we were lifting the ladder into position, and before we attached it, William wasted no time in scampering halfway up the ladder as we held it before we could stop him and get him to wait!

Turbo Tube SlideThe Tube Slide is the highlight of this playground. As a relatively expensive option, we were going to leave it off, hoping to add it "someday" but then decided that this, unlike several of the other parts of the playground, was something William could use NOW and we'd get more value out of it just by adding it from the start. It assembled together with something like a million bolts, nuts, and washers. Thank goodness for air ratchets... In this picture, we hadn't yet finished the bottom of the slide so it's just resting on boards.
