Wednesday evening we got to volunteer at the building of a new playground over at Chambers Bay. They passed around a sign-up sheet at church, and we thought it sounded like fun.
It was all very well organized. They even had dinner for the volunteers--pizza from Papa John's and salad from Olive Garden. Papa John's sent along a dancing mascot with their pizza. (Kate found the pizza guy amusing.)
They also had child care, at a place across the street from the park. After we ate we took the kids over and got them signed in. Andy wouldn't keep his name tag on so they put it on his back.
We lined up with the other volunteers and got our assignment. Doug and I got to pick up garbage. (Wheee!)
"If we only had a wheelbarrow that would be something."
Sister missionaries helping out.
Doug trims a cardboard cement mold.
Sunset! It's a gorgeous area.
The playground is supposed to be finished this Sunday! It was pretty cool to see everything in progress. We'll have to go back when it's done and check it out!
