Swinging Into Spring

Yesterday was the first day that really felt like spring here in Toledo. The icy winds had finally abated, the sun was out, giving it all it could possibly muster. To celebrate the occasion, my chums Sofia, Reyes and I decided to go for a walk by the river. We didn’t need our woollen coats, bobble hats or any other tedious winter paraphernalia ๐Ÿ™‚

It was a very civilised stroll, befitting of a middle aged posse… until we hit the playground…

Sofia was brave enough to get on first... will it hold??

Chains are creaking ominously, but I've decided to ignore it...

Reyes isn’t quite trusting it…

Now she's getting in the swing of it...

Now she’s getting into the swing of things…


Imbalanced? Not us!

Soon the trees will be as lush and green as the grass :)

    I’m sure you naughty ladies broke all sorts of rules – height restrictions, over 13 yrs etc etc but there is something liberating about jumping on a swing and no cakes involved either ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ha, good on ya! I have an urge to do cartwheels every now and then but I restrain myself ๐Ÿ™‚ A nice bit of swinging however, is always welcome… ๐Ÿ˜‰ Some of your pictures aren’t showing though it might just be my computer?

        Nope. It’s 9:30, I am hoping it will be an early Friday night and I will leave in an hour or so. Vodka is gone ๐Ÿ˜ฆ I finished it all. Now have to resort to wine…or whine, is it?
