One of the things I most look forward to in life is having my very own backyard. Sure, the house and location are what really matter — but a backyard is where all the fun is!

I often dream of all the wonderful things I’d love for it to have: a beautiful fire pit, a little pond, maybe a special garden… There are so many cool possibilities, it’s hard to decide.

But when I saw this incredible backyard feature, I knew this is one thing my future yard definitely needs.

However, it’s not just the beautiful product that I love — but the adorable family that built it, and the sweet little boy that will be enjoying it for many years to come!

After all, what can be better than a good dad building something for the child he loves? In my opinion, nothing.

This dad knew he wanted to build something special for his little boy — so after coming up with a great idea, he picked up some lumber and got to work!

After cutting the pieces down to size, he began to put it all together. As he photographed his progress, his sweet little boy helped to provide some scale.

He knew exactly where he wanted his project to go: on the site of an old sandbox square (which had been removed after a neighbor's cat kept using it for a litter box).

He dug the posts 14" deep, set the deck frame, and installed some floor planks.
