Backyard fun

My kids love digging in the sandpit or doing flips & tricks on the trampoline. Ive always wanted a cool kids backyard, so all of the kids  wanted to hang out at my place, that way I would know what they're up to.
 I'm renting so I just have a basic backyard, but we do have swings, sandpit & trampoline & often plenty of kids visiting to enjoy it.
 I have however realised by having heaps of kids, over if your not careful your fridge & pantry cupboard can be emptied very quickly. We have had to set rules with the kids about not handing out food without my say so, otherwise we have nothing left for the lunch boxes for the week.

Is this the most stylish sand pit on the planet, not to mention tidy, our sandpit toys lay strewn all over the sandpit.... all of the time!!!

A cubby with its own deck, the perfect play area really. I can see some mini Adirondack chairs would be the perfect accessory for this one, the kids could relax & enjoy slurping on an icy!!!

Love love love the trampoline sunken into the ground.
 This time of the year where we live it gets pretty windy & you often see trampolines blown across yards, damaging anything in there path. This would be a great solution to that problem.

Do you have an awesome kids back yard with lots of neighborhood kids dropping by to play?
