We built a swing

I’ve done it – the Kiwi Country Girl is officially in action…are you all still there?? I hope so!

This is my sister Rachel.

We had a cute sister day on Saturday. We made waffles and iced coffees and sat out on the deck in the sun.

We made a swing (1)

Then we both looked at the big old oak tree in the paddock. At approximately the exact moment she was thinking “a swing would look really good in that tree” I said it.

We’re kind of in tune. It’s a sister thing.

And this tree was just BEGGING for a swing!

So we built one.

I think Josh was kinda glad he wasn’t around to see this. It would have made him very nervous. No idea why. Nothing wrong with 2 blondies that know nothing about building playing with power tools right?

So we cut some wood, drilled some holes, found some rope and threw it into the tree.

I didn’t make Rachel do all the work – in this one, I’m holding the swing!

That is one happy oak tree!

Also, the dangling rope is there for a reason. There is a 99% chance that we borrowed it from Josh’s dad and that he may need it back. We thought it would be best not to cut it, juuuuust in case. 🙂
