Yes, she's spolied ... your point?

After months of researching, looking and looking some more ... we bought the first one we looked at. Figures, sigh. But, this is a big investment for us and we wanted to do it right (and get the best price, heh). Finally, after all the waiting, Emi's new swing set/play equipment thing was delivered and set up this weekend. Oh the joy, oh the excitement, oh the ... "wait? I can't HELP??"



But, in the end, it was worth it.



Disney will have to wait a year or two, as will a couple of other things we were toying with (and yes, grass seed instead of sod for most of the back yard - that sweet face, is worth it!). This is right now. This is exercise (even though she doesn't know it). This is fun ... for longer than a four-day trip to see the Mouse ... that she probably wouldn't go near anyway. Oh, the Mouse trip is high on my wish list of things to do with Emi. Oh Jeff's, not so much. On Emi's - not even on her radar. So, it can wait. She is loving this thing, constant. She wakes up wanting to go out, she's dragged into the house at night wanting more. I am already getting a (mild) sunburn from sitting outside with her (next investment is an umbrella thing for mama!).

I sat out there this morning watching her run around, climb her rock wall (took her less than three tries to "do it Emi, Mama" - yeah, no helping this gal!), and just having the time of her life. It makes my heart smile to see her so happy.

Maybe she's not spoiled. Maybe we are. The love and joy she brings to Jeff and I - we are just so darned lucky.

Spoiled rotten lucky.

That is a FANTASTIC looking set! Certainly worth it. Fin was 5 and 6 when we went to Disney and it was a great first-timer age.

We've been looking at something simillar for Rowan. She loves playing at the playground and we'd like to have one in the back for friends to come over and play on. Hey, anything for a bribe for playdates. :)

Spoiled all depends on the kid. All you do is provide the goodies...

She looks like she's having a blast! Let's call it "blessed" instead. ;-)
