We Have a Ramp!

I have had the greatest news to share, and kept forgetting to upload pictures so I can share it!!  I am proud to announce that WE HAVE A RAMP!  I am so excited!  For years I have been working on trying to get a ramp built to our playground so that the girls can climb up independently and go down the slide independently.  We ended up using someone our neighbors were using to build their shed, and I'm so glad we did.  He was so wonderful to work with!!  He really cared about the girls and the project, and made sure that it was just right.  The poor guy took things apart and lengthened and re-did things until he felt it was just what the girls needed, and it is!  They are so excited to have some independence and to be able to play outside without asking momma to carry them up the ladder. 

I want to share the information of the person that we used, because he was awesome to work with.  His name is Jim, he's a general contractor, and if you would like his phone number, please e-mail me at jamie_lugo@hotmail.com. 

I also want to take a moment to say "thank you" to two very amazing and special people who helped make this possible.  You know who you are, and we love and appreciate you very much!

Without further-ado, here are some pictures of the final product....

Originally we had it to where the posts end, but needed to lengthen it, so we did.  We also added carpet to make the girls legs have more "grip" and keep it cooler.
 

 

 
My parents bought the girls this special needs swing for Christmas and it's awesome!
 

 
I had him add sides so that Madi could sit and adjust her legs by herself, without risking her getting a leg over and falling.

 
We put our little padding at the bottom so the girls have a nice soft landing.  They usually want their hand held anyway, which is fine with me, but it's just an extra measure to make sure they are safe.


 
And here's a video of the girls using the ramp.  They were a little distracted by the karate belt, so it took longer than normal, but you get the idea :)
 

 


And here is a note from Madi...
