A Day in Which a Tire Swing was Hung


There has been a tire in our front yard for about three months. 

This tire has lived its life, taking us around Houston, all the way to Pennsylvania and back (twice), on adventures to Galveston, and many trips to Nana and Papa's house. We replaced it with some new tires at the beginning of the summer and it has resided in our front yard since then.

Yesterday it started its new job.


It started with a humble trip to Home Depot. Barry took the little man and they bonded over nuts and bolts and all manner of manly items before they came home. They drilled drainage holes in the bottom of the tire.


William wanted to help drill the holes for the eyelet bolts. 


We hung it low to begin with so the boys could play around on it without getting hurt. 


The cutest pictures you guys!


We stuck a bucket in it so the twins could ride a little easier. 


William refused a nap earlier (so frustrating! Momma needs her downtime, damnit!)
so he took a late nap in the swing. I didn't even feel bad. 


I finally got to swing with my boys! The way Barry hung it it is strong enough for me to get on it!
I was so excited! Then Bear Bear said:

"Mommy, you can't wide (ride), you too bwig."

Thanks baby. 

Ahhh the joys of motherhood.
