I'm cleaning out my computer and came across a great file of quotes that I thought I would share with you. Do you have any favorite quotes?

Plant impossible gardens. Look forward to dreams. Cry during movies. Swing as high as you can on a swingset, by moonlight. Cultivate moods. Do it for love. Take lots of naps. Take moonbaths. Giggle with children. Listen to old people. Drive away fear. Play with everything. Entertain your inner child. Build a fort with blankets. Get wet. Hug trees. Write love letters. ~SARK~
************

Taking a tangent from your "Swing as high as you can" comment, I got to thinking...

Do you remember the old metal swingsets? They kind that when you'd swing really high the legs would lift off the ground then WHAM slam back into the ground sending shock waves through the chains. I'm surprised we didn't all die as children! LOL

When looking for a swingset for my kids I looked for wood, recycled platics, vinyl, and finally metal. Wow! Have they come a long way since we were kids! Just check out the kinds of cool stuff you can get in today's metal swingsets: myLifePlay.com. They also have a good list of frequently asked questions and safety-related links to consider when shopping for a play set.

I wonder what our kids will remember when they're shopping for their own kids.
