BB#1 spent quite a bit of time preparing for the big day. He pre-cut all the pieces, printed out pictures and wrote directions for what needed to be done for each step.
Look how everyone is working! BB#1 really did a great job of organizing all the workers.
Of course my dad was the hero of the day, really of the whole thing. My dad worked with BB#1 from the very beginning, helping him design the project, price out supplies, deal with logistics and everything in between. He was the on site construction engineer and his knowledge and expertise were beyond helpful. (It's like the Pine Wood Derby on steroids!)
Here is Diamond working with our friend Sean. Sean served in scouting for the bulk of the last two years, encouraging and developing BB#1. There are very few people who I think of as highly as Sean. I have seen how BB#1 just blossomed under his supervision. When I was feeling overwhelmed and burned out with all the responsibilities our family has been asked to bear, thinking of the whole thing as a swap for my kid to spend time with Sean made it all feel worthwhile.
Once everything was totally completed we surprised BB#1 with a little commemorative plaque to put on one of the benches. He was pretty jazzed about it.
Great job kid!
