Let's Go Ride a Swing, Higher Than Anything....

     The first thing Larry built when we moved to the Valley was swings for little visitors and they've been flying ever since. We know spring is in full swing when the swings are full of little ones. Whether they can pump on their own or need a push, they love our little playground with swings, a teeter-totter, a jungle gym, and a trampoline. The kids keep saying we need a merry-go-round as well, but those are hard to find these days. I guess it's the liability. When we were in Texas in February we went to a playground with one and Larry was the motor for quite a while spinning it around. The kids had a blast. So if you see a merry-go-round, Camp Kreitzer's in the market for one.

I had to go look on ebay to see if anyone sells merry go rounds lol. Here's one if you're willing to pick it up in Mississippi. ;)

Thanks for the heads up Becky. I like that $6500.00 model. We are discussing fundraising options. Maybe the kids will want to chip in $1000 each. We tried one of those little ones at a playground in TX and I could not get it to go around. But then I'm not a kid. (You probably noticed.) Think I'll put the merry-g0-round on hold until I win the lottery. But that would require me to buy a ticket....
