Best Saturday part III- The Swinney's

Brother Swinney was out at the Rhames' with us picking fruit and invited us to come and try their zip line. We have heard a lot about it the last year and when he taught Jacob's class he told him he could come do it. So we finally made it out there!

Above is Jake on the zip line, below is Ben.
They also have an awesome tire swing that the boys tried out and loved.
It was cute to hear their peels of laughter and squeals.
The zip line starts way up in this tree, it's pretty high up there.
Peyton enjoyed the Turkeys and chickens. She didn't do any zip lining.
All my kids are big time animal lovers but Jake takes the cake. We probably would not have been able to get away without him holding at least one animal.

On Tyler's run, one of them anyway, he sadly forgot about his shoulder issue and hurt himself a bit, so on the next run he didn't let himself hang down, we really don't need another dislocation do we? I thought I got video of Tyler and Micah but I can't seem to find it. If it turns up maybe I'll put it in another post.

I've always wanted to try a zip line. Looks like fun. I'm sure your boys love it. I am curious though, did you try it?

I didn't. I wanted to though. I used to be pretty daring and since having kids something wierd has come over me. I also was a bit worried that I wouldn't be able to support my weight :) I am a few pounds too heavy, I can't even do pullups anymore. So, hopefully next time when I'm lighter I'll try it.

That zip line is awesome. I wish I had some big trees in my backyard so I could make one.

Uh oh...when I heard that Tyler forgot for a moment about his shoulder, I just cringed inside.

It looks so fun. The Swinneys should charge admission. Zip line and petting zoo - Id pay money for that!
