Rope Swing

We found a new rope swing.
And it is AWESOME!!!

 We all took turns on the new rope swing.

Murray started out showing us how it is done.
 Out.
 Out.
Release.
 And fall.
 Uncle Stephen up on the platform.
 He had to lift his long legs up a little higher than the rest of us.
 Out.
Out.
 Release.
 And Fall.
And then it was Ella's turn.

Taking in the landscape.
Hoisted up by Daddy.
 A good shove to make sure she gets way out over the water.
Out.
 Out.
 Release.
 And Fall.
 Yes, Ella did land in the water (where she could not touch).
It is a little deceiving in these pictures.

And then Miller's Turn...

Out.
 Out.
 Out.
 And back in...
We could not keep Miller off of the other rope swing, but for some reason this one actually brought out a little fear in our dare devil Miller.  It was actually way more scary for us seeing Miller swing back in than it was for him to hang on and swing back in!

Maybe a few more trips to the rope swing will build up his courage.
