Grampa's Playhouse!

Sorry for not writing for a while guys- my dad was up visiting us for the past two weeks and while he was here he built a playhouse!

My daughter is turning two in a week!

AHHHHH! I cannot believe it!

How does time fly by so fast?

And as a birthday present for her my husband and I wanted to give her a playhouse. We were Not however prepared for the amazing playhouse Grampa had in mind. The playhouse has insulation, drywall, faux wood floors inside, working windows, lights inside and outside -and an air conditioner!!

She is a lucky girl! I already told my husband that as soon as she goes to college someday – I am calling the playhouse as MY OFFICE!!

Below are some time lapse photos of Grampa’s special creation- I hope you enjoy!
