2 simple words in the English language...

Rope Swing.


...you know of 2 other words that pack in so much fun?


I submit the rope swing for a large WIN in the asskickingfuntime category. No child should go through childhood without having been involved in the set up of at least one rope swing. We got 30' of the finest Manila sisal rope we could buy and hung it up like pirates would have.




Cooked Brown Lunch riverside while the boys swang. Ate it out of cans like hobos would have.




Then we took that rope down and brought it home with us so no misguided anti-fun zealots can cut it down, like do-gooders would have.





Summer!

Can you please adopt me?

Agreed. There was one down in front that swung out over the lake. Grab the end, walk up the big tipped willow over the water until the slack was gone and let'er fly. I was always struck by the cursing it instilled in the kids.

I also put up a tire in backyard yard with a rope so long it was silly. Life is exceedingly good if you're a kid with loving parents.

If you built that rope swing...and by built I do mean tied a rope to that bridge, yes...you might be up for The Super Awesome Dad of the Summer award...
