The Ultimate Playground/Fort

In one area of the base (this base is ENORMOUS), there is this incredible playground. The sign near it says is was constructed through the efforts of over 3,000 volunteers... and I believe it! It is a labyrinth of tunnels and passageways, slides, towers, bridges, ropes and MUCH more. My personal favorite was the tire swing. Fred pushed me on it, sometimes with a kid on my lap, and we'd spin around giggling. Parts of it look like parts of various aircraft, "training" equipment, and even a ship. Plenty of swings and slides, including metal slides- something you could NEVER have in southern Arizona! It's a truly remarkable structure, and the kids had a blast... as did Fred and I.

That looks awesome! I wish we had stuff like that here. I hope you guys are having fun there. We sure miss you. I was just thinking of you this week while on my staycation thinking, I wish you were here so we could go have fun together. We did take your advice and went to petsmart. We took Chloe in to get groomed and then we looked at all the cool animals there. We even picked out a fish for Jaden. His first one. He loves it. Thanks for the great ideas. We love you guys!! the Bakers
