We wanted to do something special for our baby, as he is only going to turn 5 once. So we decided to build him a see saw. Now, we have done this once before. It was five years, 4 states, and 3 moves ago. We lived in Wisconsin. He doesn't remember it. We had to sell it in our move and have always wanted to build another one. A few months earlier we set out to find our antique wagon wheels and found the perfect set, for our now bigger, more grown up kids.
It was birthday weekend and grandpa and grandma were coming to visit. This was the perfect project for father, son and two grandsons to work on together.
With all four boys helping.... it didn't take long at all, and the see saw was finished. The kids couldn't wait to test it out!
Grandma even chimed in and suggested we add some old tractor seats to the middle, for extra seating. We happened to have some, and now all five kids can play at once. We even have room for a friend!
This see saw is definitely special to our baby, because he got to help his dad and grandpa make it. It doesn't get any better then that!
