Zip Line

Two years ago Jamie's parents gave our older kids a zip line for Christmas, as a requested gift. The kids all loved it, but Jamie took it down because we had been expecting several families over for 4th of July and did not want anyone getting hurt on it, and it was never put back up. Last night Zach convinced good old Dad to re-attach it (not an easy task), and he agreed.

Zach, Micah, and Amelia had an absolute blast zipping along on it! Sunny even tried once with Dad running along beside her.

Disclaimer: The fussing in the background is not Amelia afraid, it is Micah wanting to ride. And the dog barked and chased, but never touched the kids. None of the kids ever fell off.

We had to come in the house after a bit, because Micah was upset that his turn was not every turn.

I am sure it will get a lot of use this Summer. Thankfully, the little ones cannot reach the zipper without the help of someone much taller. Although it dips fairly low while they are on it, the line pops back up without the weight of a rider.

How cool is that! It looks like so much fun! And your disclaimer cracked me up - our Lauren makes such weird noises, I'm always wanting to give disclaimers to the neighbors: she's not being hurt, she's just excited :) hee hee.
