Ava Grace's Closet: Just a girl. And her swing set.

Thursday, July 21, 2011

Just a girl. And her swing set.

When we moved from our last home to our present one, we contemplated at length whether to move our backyard swing set with us.
The Original Baby Girl had already outgrown it.
And The King had maybe another good year to enjoy it before he too would just be "too big".
It was a little worse for wear.
And needed to be painted desperately.
Was there even room for it?

For some reason, we brought it along.
And there it sat in our yard, begging to be used.
The kids had an occasional swing. (and almost pulled the posts OUT of the ground on numerous occasions)
But for the most part, it was just there.

And then this happened.
We were blessed with someone new to love that old swing set.

(Dear God. Thank you for my swing set.)

She rocked our world.
It is only fitting that she rocks that old swing set.
