All of these photos were taken within an hour drive of my home. Coming from the flat lands of Lubbock, Texas, it still blows my mind that I now live so close to this kind of view.
Yesterday, I decided to hang a swing in the back yard. My parents gave it to us a couple of years ago, but we’ve never had a good place to hang it until now.
Although I was able to throw the rope over the branch from the ground, I had to climb up to get it placed correctly on the branch (and also to show my wife that I hadn’t lost my tree-climbing touch).
My kids love swinging, and it turned out great.
Lan was in town for the weekend, and she’s the one who took the photo of me in the tree.
