Barefoot in the Backyard: Spring Fun

We are just delighting in this warm, spring weather. We are basking. We are spending hours in the back yard.
Soon enough there will be those dreary mornings of June gloom. But for now, we are barefoot in the backyard and loving every minute of it!
And, Daddy put up a swing.

It is just a board and a rope, tied to a "way up high" branch of the avo tree.
But is providing countless hours of fun.
The best is when they go really high.
So high they swing into the leaves.
So high the swing goes crazy and spins around and they almost slam into the tree trunk and then Lilly walks in front of the swing and Mommy almost has a heart attack.
That's how high.
So high they can't stop laughing.

Such a simple pleasure.
I want them to have a play house and a tree house and a climbing wall and sand box--the best backyard they could ever wish for.
What a good reminder.
It doesn't take much to make them happy.
Thank you Daddy for our new swing.
