Andrew the builder

Presenting our the kids newest swing set....

The very first swing set we got for the kids was old. Ralph bought from his friend for $150. It did work for the kids but the swing set would sway back and forth when the kids get on the swing. It made us all nervous and worried about the kids safety. Three weeks ago Ralph nephew Andrew came down for the weekend to put up the fence we were going to buy. As it turned out the fence had to be ordered and would not come in another 2 weeks. Since Andrew didn't have any thing to do Ralph decided to get the swing set at BJ's. It had to be installed and Andrew is very good at these kinds of stuff. The swing set is only $899. It is a great price considering how big and nice it it. Before we decided about getting a new swing set of the kiddos we shopped around and by golly swing sets are just so darn expensive. The cheapest we saw with just the most basic accessory was about $1700. But anyway, we are so pleased with the bargain we got with this swing set. Andrew had to put it all together and took him about 15 hrs. to finally put it all together. If everything was all labeled it would have taken him just 5 hours but nothing was labeled at all. I was very very impressed by his dedication and he did a great job.
