David on the “Big Boy” Swing

Until now when we went to the playground (one in Mullens or one of the several at Twin Falls state park), David rode in the kid swings – bucket-shaped with leg holes – but he never liked getting out, because his feet would get stuck and it could take some turning to extricate him. So I thought I’d see if he was ready for the “big boy” swing, the ones with a seat and no back. Turns out he was, and liked it just fine, although needed to devote more attention to holding on and was more important to have his mittens in the current below-freezing temperatures (he also recently learned to put his hands in his coat pockets… “hands in pocketses!”).

I may have been trying to acquire his feet in some of the pictures, which makes him laugh a lot.
