David Howard needs to come to the front of the congregation and accept nomination for father of the decade. Howard spent 18 months building a playhouse for his 2 kids that literally rivals a castle.
Look at that thatched roof over the entrance, there are flower boxes below the windows! The homey touches are nice, but what really makes the house a home run are the slide and bridge. I know a lot of adults that wish they had a slide and/or bridge on their property, let alone their homes. These kids get an all-weather slide and bridge. It's an indoor playground similar to Total Wine!
Now, I know, I know, eventually these 2 little ones will grow out of this house, but they will never stop appreciating it. This is the equivalent of my father driving down from NH and building me a back country home CT by hand, all inclusive with a pond and mountain to climb.
Father of the decade has been decided people, forget your nominees.
