Enjoy!!! It's fun and addicting. And it's awesome you can get your whole family involved!
That's what I call going all in. Enjoy
My wife and i enjoyed several of my hobbies together until we got married, after which her interest suddenly waned.
My first hammock purchase was a WBBB and mamajamba tarp, you will not be disappointed.
Get yourself plenty on stakes and guy line, you gonna need a bunch of both (up to 6 stakes and 100' of line per hammock).
Learn the knots before you head outside, it will save yall a bunch of time and headaches (or butt aches depending on how you fall).
Some of the best advice I got and that really works in practice is to do lots of backyard tryouts. That allows you to get the gear easily dialed in but especially lets you get the family comfortable and used to it in a safe environment.
I love my Blackbirds, but my turtledog stands (I don't have enough trees in my backyard) are maybe my most important pieces of gear.

Sweet! what a way to get started!
"Mother Gue", I says "the Rocky Mountains is the marrow of the world," and by God, I was right. Keep your nose in the wind and your eye along the skyline.
We'll need 4 pics, one for each of those two resting feet in their hammock.
Enjoy the elevation
