The Tire Swing

Early this spring, the branch that held our tire swing broke. The children have gone all summer without it and really didn't seem to miss it. I on the other hand did. To me a tire swing exudes home and country. What country home depicted in photos doesn't have a tire swing?

So the other day, I rolled out the tire, and hunted down the rope (it was too high for me to reach). I asked the Engineer to hang it for me (notice it's for me -- not the kids ;o)). He promptly did so, and...

guess who's been enjoying it ever since!?!

  1. We had one in a cherry tree, with a tree fort. Where we sat and spit pits all over :0)

  2. I truly expected to see a photo of you on that swing! After all who could actually resist?

  3. How fun! We have a spot that's workable, but there's also the possibility of banging into a couple of large pine trees. Hubby would love to cut them down, but I don't know...............
