Thank you Aunt Jamie!

My kids' Aunt Jamie (aka my big sis) wanted to do something fun for them to celebrate Spring and the arrival of some outdoor weather...so she sent them this:It took me (and my neighbor, Emily and our friend, Howard [thanks guys]) the better half of the day yesterday to set it up. The box said "sets up in less than an hour!" They don't take into account the 10 kids swarming around and all the breaks needed to attend to those kids!
But...after a couple of hours Voila, we are ready for take off.
The kids are having so much fun on their new toy and we have just one more reason for all the kids in the neighborhood to congregate at our house. Thanks, Jamie!
Here the kids express their sentiments. (Our neighbor Isaac was the loudest...and longest!)

My kids keep talking about your airplane. I am sorry I could not stay to help with the set up but I'm here for the take down.:)

This looks like the coolest outdoor toy ever! My kids would be so jealous if I showed it to them.

Kaylee followed Grace and Katie over to your back yard yesterday to get some balls and didn't want to leave to come back to the party!

Leave it to Aunt Jamie to be so thoughtful. What a completely wonderful toy. This certainly insures you to be most popular on the block.
