So did they get it? I love the pictures you can see the plot forming.

Great photos. They do tell a story as they go.

@ Pamela - I am sure they did get it eventually. Normally, after a couple of unsuccessful attempts, they lower the height a bit. I was with my (then) tiny kids, so didn't stay long enough to see.

@ Mason - those are the most fun, aren't they?
