Swingin' in Style

Charlie from work mentioned that since all of his kids are grown up now they might be willing to part with their swing set. The oldest boy built it many years ago and, wow, it is HUGE! We’re having a really warm run of weather so yesterday we put it together and had the neighbor help me get it upright again (a crane would have worked better). Zane was chomping at the bit, wanting to try the swing before I even got the second link hooked up.

He’s still quite the daredevil … mostly. While swimming yesterday all of the kids just dove headfirst into the tube water slide. I told Zane he could do that if he wanted to, but he couldn’t convince himself to dive, instead lowering and inching his way in. This, from the same kid that’s in the photo below.
