Behind the Scenes: A New Swing

We asked the girls to showcase the new swing we recently finished at the farm. They were happy to accommodate. (Look for instructions for making a barrel-stave swing like ours in the next issue of MaryJanesFarm, out mid-July.)

Uncle Brian gave them some pretty big pushes.

And if only he could have pushed them for hours.

I would say the new swing is going to be the highlight of the summer, since all four cousins can fit on it together.

But there’s always a new pile of gravel being delivered that looks pretty enticing, too.

And somehow, they didn’t even get their white dresses dirty!

    Now that is a proper swing!! I am assuming adults get to take a few turns?!

    A great swing, plus a strong uncle to push a load of wiggly cousins, equals absolute delight on all of those bright faces ~ look at them bubbling with joy! I can almost hear their squeals and laughter coming out of the picture. What wonderful memories that swing is about to create. And three angels in white dresses on top of that pile of gravel, hahahaha, just wait.

    What absolutely precious pictures! Those kids are a treasure Mary Jane and Meg. Brian is so cool, I would adopt him but he’s already taken (sorry Ashley). He looks like he is having fun too.
