Play structure finished!

OK, so between the hot weekends (working morning and evenings only), trips out of town, and other scheduled events, we finally finished the play structure for our son. Because of size limitations we built our own instead of getting a prefab one. We probably saved a few hundred $$$ this way, but it was also a LOT more work. I think it turned out OK, but when doing a project like this you always learn that you could do things better a second time.....
We used Rubber Bark (blue!) around the structure - didn't want to use bark or rock. We were in a hurry to get stuff delivered at the time, but I found out later you can get it much cheaper ordering online than delivered by the landscaper. Should have known.....I didn't think the price difference would be all that significant, but it was.
