There is an old country music song, made popular many years ago, called Swingin'.  It was originally recorded and made famous by John Anderson.  That song is what comes to mind whenever I look at this picture.

You see, the highlight of the week for these two is when Cade's daddy starts them "swingin".  Nobody can do it quite like Brett does--and these two will quickly tell you that!

Brett holds down the leg of the swing set with one arm, and swings them into orbit with the other!  They absolutely love it.  The squeals of laughter and delight resemble those you would hear coming from an amusement ride!  The sounds resonate over the entire yard, and into our houses.

The rest of us cringe and silently hold our breath as we watch the two children hurling back and forth at warp speed, but the three "kids" at the swing set are oblivious to anything except having fun.  I guess it's good that there is at least one "kid at heart" among the rest of us "old poops"!

One thing for sure...I'll bet "swingin" will always be remembered as an awesome time in the minds of these children--but only when Brett was doing the pushing!

I sure do remember this song. We actually played it in the high school marching band. :-)

Now I'm going to have this song stuck in my head all day long.
