We found something appropriate and reasonably priced at F.I.M. in Arlington Heights. It was a bit of a challenge, as Katie was more interested in the giant inflatable Halloween Tigger at the front of the store than she was in any of the furniture. Then she discovered the well-worn bamboo gazebo in the outdoor section of the store which she declared to be a "treehouse". Ok. At least it kept her busy while I finished the transaction. The table and cushions are at home now. Gretchen's gone back to pick up the chairs.
And tonight, we'll grill some steaks and try it out. :)
(It may be the last really nice evening for a while. It's supposed to turn cold shortly.)
