i fell off the seasaw || tennis court

Sunday, July 03, 2016


So yesterday we went to a park. I LOVE PARK DAYS. Anddd, we were walking around taking photos and we


came across this tennis court. It had grass growing through the cracks and vines crawling up the fence. It was


super cool. So we were taking photos and we were saying how we wish we had bought some rackets so we


could take some pictures.





On the bench nearby, Julia spotted something. It turned out out to be this really cool racket (with a hole, duh),


but it worked great for photos anyways. lol.






So Julia and I were going up and down on the seasaw thingy (yeah, kids at heart. NEVER GROW UP) and I


bounced up, (literally), and suddenly, I felt myself slipping.





I seriously slipped off, still holding on of course, and did this odd twirl twisting my arms.


"Are you okay?!" Julia waited until I was crouched on the ground beneath the sea saw before she jumped off.


(Thank you very much for waiting to get off)


"I'm dead," I groaned, crouching on the ground, "oh, this is going to feel bad tomorrow."


My arms and legs seriously felt like they were tied to a pole and beaten, (not like that's ever happened before..)





Would I go on a seasaw again? Yes. and I have no idea why.





P.S. Sorry if comments won't be published for a day or so—it's because I'm going on a camping trip. xD






have you ever gone somewhere that just felt oddly mystical?


would you (of have you) gone a sea saw of late?

  4. Parks are just so magical to me, I don't know, I feel like there's so much you can just explore in a park.

    Oh my, seesaws TERRIFIED me as a kid, just the thought of possibly being FLUNG up in the air, *shivers*, no thanks.

    (i think i like flailed when I saw your pictures by the way, drool, they're so beautiful ahdhfdjfhff)

    1. You'd love the one we go to then. There are so many trails, and it's like this amazing forest. SO COOL. (we went camping there last night actually. IT WAS AWESOME. XD)

      Well, I think it only terrifies me when you bounce. That's actually what happened to me--I bounced then slipped. :P

      GAH. THANK YOU SO MUCH. <3 <3

  5. I always love your pictures, Sarah! The third one is super pretty! Once I was sitting on the end of a seasaw and my dad jumped on the other side when I wasn't paying attention, and I went into the air and landing on my face. 😂😂😂 Everyone thought that it was funny but at the moment it wasn't to me. ;-)

    1. Thanks so much, Maddy! <3 <3

      THAT SOUNDS HORRIBLE. I made my dad promise not to suddenly get off on me (we went on it together with my brother lol). That sounds like it hurt. lol. IKR? Did you get bruised at all? I just got a few bruises on my knees and arm but other than that I'm totally fine. I actually went back on it today (when we went camping). xD

  7. Awww, that must have hurt! Not fun! Yeah, I think I've been places that have felt rather spooky, but I'm not sure if it was mystical! LOL! I haven't been on a sea-saw in a long time, LOL! We don't really go to parks anymore. :( I hope your camping trip was awesome! Happy Independence Day! :D

  9. I love the scene you painted with your words. To answer the questions at the end of your post, yes, and yes.
    Being a tennis player myself and someone who has always enjoyed a good see saw, I loved this post.

    1. I KNOW RIGHT I HAVE NO IDEA WHY I KEPT GOING ON THEM.

      IKR? I didn't even know if I spelled it right. O.o I guess it's named that because you could get nauseas, like from the sea? and because they sawed the board or something..

      *leaves because my explanations made no sense whatsoever*
