A Tower Building Day

After our California vacation Zane’s really wanted me to help him build a water park. You know, just a few spinning water vortexes, a water cannon, water wheel, sprayers, rivers, lakes … the usual stuff.
Instead I’m trying to distract him with some other projects. Friday night we looked through a Quadro design book and came up with the thing we want to build. We spent Saturday morning taking apart an old bridge, organized the parts, and then tried to make the “Baumhaus” (treehouse) shown in the book.

We didn’t have enough parts for the roof and a few other compromises were made along the way. Even though this one looks like the old one it is a bit different, with a ladder instead of stairs, and a propeller! I forgot all about making a place to attach the slide though.
