    A thoroughly enjoyable outing

    My wife and son and I met up with some friends @ a gorgeous park in Willsonville, OR. I got my Buddy Marty's son a GTUL for his birthday. The little guy had enjoyed swinging in my DIY GE, so I figured he would really enjoy one of his own, and I could also suck his dad into the cult of the hammock. When we got their the temp was nice, and there was much relaxing.

    The guys really had some fun , (Marty is a string bean so they weren't even close to the 250lb limit) Also I had him play with my whoppies.

    It started to chill out a little bit so we bundled up our little dude:

    A very spooky thick low fog came rolling in, and we decided it was hot cocoa time:

    Frisbees thrown,cocoa drank, we even witnessed somebody attempt to launch an estes rocket, (but it sort of fizzled and exploded)

    Anyway an enjoyable family outing infused with and enhanced by the hammock. Thanks for reading!

    Nice job! Every time I see parks or cultivated gardens/green spaces with trees equa-distant apart like that, I think, "what a great spot for a hang!" I'm glad to see someone actually do it!
