I bet you are "green" with envy seeing this My Bestie having sooo much fun!

Honestly, i was never a fan of tire swings..i thought they hurt my tush and so do the park swings that form around your tush.

I do love the wooden swing my dad put up on the clothes line was the best when i was growing up.  Later after i grew up and left home, he put up a swing on the tree in the back yard..i took a picture of it and i added below.

Swings are the best i think.  I have a glider now that i enjoy.. gheesh that makes me sound so old! 

Here is this sweet little Besties having the best summer ever on her swing!
When i fussy cut her, i added some foam tape under her legs to get a 2D affect:

  1. These wooden swings are definitely the best! I'm one of those people who would love to have a front porch when I'm older to sit in my rocking chair and watch the world go by! :)
