The little swings were all rusty so we replaced them with a double seat swing. The tire was old and it was cracking, so my mom was afraid for us to use it. Northeast Ohio winters are hard on playsets she said.
TJ's feet grew so big he could hardly climb up the little steps. But he made it one last time.
We took one more picture in 2005. For the fourth of July. We decided to bring our Build-a-Bears out with us too. That's my Great Grandfather's flag behind us. We used tools from his hardware store to build it in 1990, so it was only fitting our last picture included his flag. And that was about the last time we used the playset.
