Swingset Fun




These photos are from a few weeks ago. But one of Emily's favorite Christmas presents was a shiny, new swingset from her Papa (my dad). Due to weather we haven't had many opportunities to go out and play on it. But we've been able to play on it a few times. I know this spring and summer we'll be on it alot. :-) She's really been pretty brave when she swings high. Of course Mommy is a bit more conservative on how high she swings. Daddy is a bit more "fun." There has been a wipe out or two but surprisingly she just jumped up and wanted back on. She also wants Mommy to get on the swingset with her. She can't quite understand that the swingset would never be the same if Mommy got on with her. Having a swingset in my backyard brings back memories of the swingset I had in my backyard when I was little in Pennsylvania. I cannot imagine how many hours I must have clocked on that thing. I hope Emily will have similar fond memories when she's grown. Thank you again, Papa.

What a sweet post...and a sweet grandpa! We have a fort in our backyard with a slide. It has logged many, many hours as well. I think we may need to add some swings though for little Kay Kay. Thanks for sharing little Emily! What a cutie pie!
