Nothing says "Little Boy" like a pond and a rope swing.....

Camp is a little boy haven.......all the bugs and reptiles, and other creepy crawlies you could want....AND A ROPE SWING! BONUS!!



See..... it's simple.......



You just climb the ladder..... hop onto the swing.....



......and GO!



......then let go.......



SPLASH........



.....and swim back to shore!



So simple, a 4 year old could do it!



Seriously though... it's so neat to see my kids swinging from the same rope swing that I played on as a kid. Sure, there was no seat then, and there was no ladder (we had to actually climb the tree and use the rope, Tarzan-style) but it's the same swimming hole, and the same happy memories I'm getting to help build for my kids.



We are so blessed!

That looks like so much. I have never done that.
Even at 58 I would try it if I could!

That just sums up "Summer" & "Boys" to me! Love, love, LOVE it!

Great pictures! And that looks like a lot of fun. I hope we have a boy some day :)

Aww...I LOVE the pictures! You got some great angles! I've always wanted to jump off of a rope swing into water, but have always been too scared! Your 4 year old gives me hope. :)

Ahhh, I can feel the mud from Grandpa's pond squishing up between my toes as I look at those pictures. What sweet memories of a simple time in life!! Grandpa's pond is long ago silted in and gone, as is Grandpa himself, but the memories of his seven children and spouses and their children (myself being one) still live. The best memories are usually the simplest....how ironic, huh??

Thanks for the smiles tonight
