Swinging HNT

swing

We have a rather perilous rope swing in yard. It swings out over a good 20 foot drop. This week at So We Hijacked a Blog we are doing a Disney theme. I never much was into the princess scene as a kid. I always wanted to be Mowgli or Tarzan. They got to run around in underwear instead of scratchy dresses and they got to swing in trees instead of waiting for some prince to come rescue or romance them.

I love the rope swing. It makes me feel like a kid again. AAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Swing on over to Osbasso's to see how to play along. The orange and white button in the sidebar is the vine to catch.

Happy HNT!

.. as a lil girl one of my favorite things was our tire swing tied to the giant willow in the backyard.
I would sit on it for hours and sing, daydream and swing. lol
