~ our new swing ~

building a swing

other than a box of chalk, yesterday we also got ourselves a new IKEA swing. we’ve been wanting to get it since late last year, but it was out of stock for the longest time…

we all excited to get it up there, including koda (although i don’t know what the dog was excited about… she can’t ride the swing). so, before the weather gets too hot, we did the installation early in the morning.

since the beam on our driveway is too skinny for IKEA’s hanging unit, we had to improvise by using chains instead. the thing about chain is that sometimes when you ride the swing high enough, the chain makes clicking sound on each sways. it’s rather annoying. well, we probably have to deal with that clicking sound later when aina is brave (and coordinated) enough to swing that high….

we fit the swing for aina’s size, so it’s really low and close to the ground. ari and i can still ride it, as long as we lift our legs high enough.

unfortunately, aina is still rather nervous with the new swing. she was curious and tried it several times, but she had a bit of problem in balancing herself so that the seat stays perpendicular to the string. i guess it will take a lot of practice… this swing is definitely a more advanced version of the mall swing and the beach swing.
