Today I talked to my neighbor Erica, mother of five, her kids ranging from 3-21. She said forget getting a trampoline, too many injuries to all the kids in the neighborhood who will want to jump on it.
And a swing set? Forget it. A waste of money. They all rot and rust in the yard. And the kids after the initial excitement won't even use it. And it will take up the whole backyard. Her friend has buyer's regret after getting one two years ago. She wants the rotting eyesore out of her backyard.
Erica said tie a rope to a tree limb and hang a tire from it.
I went home and told Carrie. She seems to agree. No swing set.
