Have you ever tried throwing a rope over a tree, making a large loophole at the bottom of the rope, putting someone in it and lifting them up into the air?
We tried it last Sunday. LOL. It was so much fun! First all the little kids tried it (they pretended they were Peter Pan and Wendy…go figure. :D) , we heaved them up with little trouble. Then we did older kids (or otherwise known as teenagers.), with a bit of trouble. THEN…..guess who we tried? MR ALLISON! Yikes! LOL. We took a bunch of photos of our little “event” and especially of Mr. Allison…swinging from the tree with the greatest of ease! (I’ll post the pictures as soon as I get a chance.) :D We tried to convince my dad to do it, but he made an excuse. :D
Also, we played tug-of-war! At one point, Ben Allison (19) and Samuel Allison (16) were going against Abigail Allison (12), Bethany H. (12) , Sarah Allison (11) and myself. We beat them. I don’t know if it was because we’re stronger, or the fact that we had shoes on and they didn’t. :D
All in all, it was a very exciting Sunday evening!
