DIY by Dad

I cherish this little wooden rainbow:

When I was five or six, I had a brilliant request for my dad: could he build me a rainbow for our front yard, with swings hanging from it?  While I had pictured a life-size version (you know, one I could slide down, like Rainbow Brite), he made me this.  I didn’t have the heart to tell him it was a little small, but it became one of my favorite things.  He even drew a little character on one of the swings:

Or maybe I drew that.

Maybe he can teach me something about carpentry (before I turn 31, of course)…
