Last year, we inherited a large play structure from some friends. The only cost was time and effort in that we had to remove it and transport it ourselves. After an afternoon of breaking concrete and sawing extra posts and digging, we had the fort on the trailer and drove it 30 miles to our house. That was slow going, but we got it there.


Here is how it arrived.

And here is how it was after it was unloaded from the trailer.

It was my task to move all the pieces in place, make sure they were secure, and attach them. My dad spent his evening helping me do that.

And the kids helped too.

The whole thing is about 35-40 feet long. The kids enjoy it, and we definitely got our money’s worth out of it.

I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, My God, in whom I trust!”
