My 9-year-old son has been hanging with me for a couple of years, but my daughter has been happy in a tent with a friend...then, for her birthday a few weeks ago, she asked for a hammock--with no suggestion from me. I was more than happy to oblige. I picked her up a GT ultralight with a flowery pattern on it. She's been using it in the yard, but can't wait until our next trip. Unfortunately, she's going to have to wait until Father's Day weekend.
