A Musical Playground in DC

My Great Outdoors

Family: Naomi, Steve & Hope (2)
Location: Washington, DC

We wanted to create a fun space on the deck where our daughter Hope could play music so we decided to make a musical playground from several different items (wind chimes, xylophone parts, drums, boom whackers).

What we didn't expect, is that her aunt, uncles and even we spend lots of time banging around and making music.

We have terrible grass out in our backyard so we have created some play areas using mulch (around her play house) to also help ward away the bugs and expanded our gardens.

Sounds like you've got the makings for a little family orchestra! Thanks Naomi!
