Bunk Bed

Some of you may remember a little spat Anne and I had during the family reunion in May. It was about whether or not we should assemble the second half of Sy's bunk bed. The negotiation ended a couple of months later when Anne conceded that if I got/built a train table for the boys then I could put together Sy's bunk bed for him. Last week I found a great train table on craigslist for $20 and this weekend I put up the bed...... and Sy was pumped! Here is a picture of Texas' newest and most proud top bunk sleeper.

(The astute observer will also notice the new train table in the foreground.)

As I was laying on the bottom bunk this afternoon I totally had flashbacks of giving Kyle bunk rides (and having the mattress and frame crashing down on me from time to time), of climbing from bunk to bunk (when all 4 boys were in one room), of Pop yelling from the next room that if we didn't stop it he was going to _______ (fill in the blank), and of a ton of other memories. Ahhh..... that was living! I hope you enjoy it, Sy!

Have FUN, FUN, FUN, SY! Every boy deserves a bunk bed...even if he's an ONLY CHILD! You have to get at least one black eye from jumping and falling, don't you?

TOO CUTE!

Hey Anne! How are you? My kids LOVE the bunkbed as well. It just doesn't get better than that.
