People who were interested in the original thread may enjoy seeing some big grins on kids' faces courtesy of baby_balrog's playground ministry; the playgrounds are evidently up.

I missed the original thread somehow. But that's fantastic! Good Job! I love playgrounds, and I love seeing kids enjoy that pure, unfettered sense of play that is so very lacking sometimes. Just fantastic! You rock, Baby_Balrog!

Why are those kids having fun? Don't they know they aren't playing on dangerous metal contraptions? It's plastic, don't smile! Bah. Kids today!

In all seriousness, though, this is absolutely wonderful.

Is Baby_Balrog trying to make us proud of him? It's working.
