…a good hammock!
Our little vacation rental had a hammock in the backyard, and my only regret is not spending more time in it while we were there (in my defense, the days were pretty warm; lying in the hammock didn’t sound too appealing until evening). The boys L-O-V-E-D it and every chance they got, they were out there swinging in it. They were even dreaming up places at our house that we could hook one up. Though sadly, none of our trees are close enough together to be able to, and a hammock on a stand just doesn’t have the same charm to me as one strung up between two trees.
Despite the intense heat of the last few days and the inevitable Indian summer that we will still experience, summer, effectively, is over to me, since the kids are back in school. So this was a fun look back at a great summer!
