all summer i had planned on making a swing in the back yard for the kids. well, it's never too late, right???
last week we had summer weather (the temp was in the 90's) which reminded me of my swing making wishes, so the kids and i got on our swing making project.
they love helping with the power drill...
(don't worry babe, we were super safe...promise).
i used a couple of different ideas from a couple of different sights on the how to and this sight for the knots...all super helpful.
here is my basic design.
once the kids got tired of helping me they decided to make a little family out of the wooden plugs that came out of the holes that we drilled.
when we finally hung the swing and made our stand-up loop rope swing (or whatever it's called), the kids were beyond ready to try them out.
ella is my little acrobat...
she makes me a little nervous.
they have been on those
so much since we made them.
i'm so happy we didn't wait until next summer to make these.
