Remember when Jan made this - wonderful - playhouse for the kids.
The slide was rough to go down and the kids abandoned it after a year or 2 and only used it to climb on, make mud slides, and to transport playhouse toys and furniture. None of which made me happy.
I had it in my head that a zipline would be a ton of fun so I took my request to the wife. :) She was hesitant, but as I have always been super persuasive (see proof in above links) she came onboard. I had originally wanted it shorter and on more of an even hill...but when J takes the bull by the horns there is no messing around.
It took a bit more time and supplies (read, expensive wood) and the kids are in LOVE it. We had a few moments when we asked ourselves what the hell were we thinking. apparently not about liability and waiver forms but all in all it's been great.
We are calling it the B-Line....as B is the first initial of our last name. :)
In case you couldn't understand his little song....he sings, "chicka chicka bow wow, this is how you do it now"
I **heart** him !
