Installing Our Front Yard Swing

Well this post is long overdue! We installed a swing in our front yard in May so we could enjoy some more time outdoors. I decided on the Step2 infant to toddler swing, knowing it would grow with Connor. Our tree was extremely tall, so we went to Home Depot to buy some chains. We had to measure the length of chains we needed first. The tree is also so tall that we had to borrow Richard’s dad’s extension ladder.

Hanging the swing was on our to-do list for a while, but Richard’s dad was over one day and they decided to start hanging it. I was out running errands, I can’t remember what I was doing now since it was a while ago, but I remember coming up just as they were wrapping up and Richard was climbing back down off of the ladder. In a way, I’m glad I wasn’t there to witness the entire process! I would have been a nervous Nancy and probably would have just gotten in the way.

Now that it has been up for a while our family has really enjoyed being able to sit outside and push Connor on the swing. Now that the temperatures are cooling down, we’ll be able to do it even more!
