Backyard Water Park

Let me just start out this post by proclaiming the awesomeness of my husband.  He used his Sunday to build our family the coolest backyard water park I've ever seen. 

This was designed as a family project, so the first step was to load the whole family up and head to Home Depot.  Pieces and parts obtained, we headed home and put everyone to work.

The seven and nine year olds measured and sawed...

The little ones organized (and...ahem...dropped) parts.

Daddy glued all the pieces together, and made special joints (so named, super joints and cipher joints) so the whole thing could come apart and be stored later.

 Putting it all together...

 Attaching the hose.  Hope it works!
 We used stakes to make it stay put.  All that water pressure made it want to collapse.

There are three main sprinklers on top, and we drilled holes in the legs for more spraying fun.

Each leg has a valve to allow us to turn the side sprays off and give the top sprinklers more pressure.
 The best backyard water park ever!

 Of course, my children, after getting a taste of building, had to take things to the next level.  It's a house!
 And a car wash!
That'll keep us cool for a while!

This is awesome! What a fun project, and I'm sure you'll get lots of mileage out of it.
