Beach Cottage in progress

I must love these kids to be working on a work project during the Memorial holiday weekend.  Been looking so forward to having our beach cottage finished.  This will be a work in progress and take quite some time to complete.  So excited to see the finished product.  I went to Gordmas today and filled the shopping cart up with beach decor.  Our turquoise and white cottage will be vinyl sided, shingled roof, shutters on the windows, pillard white porch, and some kind of outdoor curtains.  Need help deciding what to put inside.  Thought of a kitchen but the one I bought is to big so I added it to the backyard.  I do have a small table and 2 chairs so far.  Any suggestions?  We may also get a little rain in here, not sure yet. Also may have a slide to go off the side and havent decided for the ground cover yet.  May invest in a large plastic tube underneath for a tunnel also.

This is our new water wall, the kids have not seen it yet.  They are slowly arriving right now and today they will be so excited to have something new.  I found myself testing the water flow but really I just kept playing with it. Our sand box was running very low on sand so it has been refilled for sand castles, mud pies etc.

I bought this kitchen at a garage sale for the beach cottage.  Well after the walls were up I realized it would leave them with a little space.  I think it will work out just perfect sitting right here along their bike path.  They can stop and order food while they are driving.  I do have a little table and 2 beach chairs to put in the cottage.  Maybe a yoga mat and a few pillows to go along.  I figured anything in the cottage will need to be weather proof.  Not sure, until I figured out the window situation.
