Build It and They Will Come

This is one of the many mass emails that hit my mailbox daily (or so it seems). Most I simply delete. Then there are those that I want to send to everyone I know. Every once in awhile I get one I want to share with the world! This is one of those :)

Forwarded to me by one of my favorite aunts - thanks, Aunt Penny!

A family that lives on the outskirts of Anchorage , Alaska decided to build a sturdy, colorful playground for their 3 and 4 year old sons. They lined the bottom with smooth-stone gravel all around to avoid knee scrapes and other injuries. They finished building it one Friday evening and were very pleased with the end product.

The following morning, the mom was about to wake up the boys and have them go out to play in their new play center. This is what she saw from the upstairs window:




This gives a whole new meaning to 'If you build it, they will come!'
