My Grandaughter, Hannah and I built a pergola to be attached to her playhouse. She helped me all of the way.

This is a beautiful pergola, and it is great to see you training your granddaughter the right way. She will make some lucky lumberjock a wonderful wife someday!

I think it is great that you spend quality time with your granddaughter this way. As someone else mentioned the Yard looks like a paradise for anyone. BTW The Playhouse is a work of art, I thought it was your real home for a moment there – great work and attention to detail!!!!!!!
