Why didn't I know about this?
Julia, Susan, you have younger kiddos. Were you in on the hammocking thing? And the hammocks, of course, are the latest must-have item. One company, Kammock, actually started in Dallas using Kick-starter, and was so successful that they've now moved to hipper Austin and are competing with much bigger companies. (Their most popular hammock, the Roo, carries the same name as my college mascot, so would be my pick.)
So, a group of kids plan to meet up with their hammocks, which they set up in all sorts of interesting configurations. They snack and socialize, do homework and color, and maybe even read books! (That might be stretching it--excuse the pun.)
How fun is this? I would have loved it!
Here's to inventive kids, inventive entrepreneurs, and to National Hammock Day, which is coming up on July 22nd.
I hope you all have a cool, hanging out holiday weekend. I might try to grab a few minutes in my hammock (in the morning, when it's relatively cool.) Here's my favorite hammock photo.
And because I couldn't resist, these two.
