Jungle Gyms

Do you remember being a kid and playing on your swingset?  It was the foundation of all your outdoor play.  It became a ship, a train, or a circus theme.  We constantly used our imaginations while we played.  My brother always played cops and robbers or cowboys and Indians ( I know that is no longer correct, but that is what it was ).  I usually acted out some episode of a show.  I remember being wonder woman and the bionic woman.  I ran across the picture of a bunch of neighborhood kids playing on our jungle gym, that is what we called it.  Don't you love my maxi dress?  It was my favorite.   I wore it all the time.  My Mom is all dressed up in a pants suit.  I never look like that to check on my kids in the back yard.  Apparently red was a popular color during the 70's.  Only one kid doesn't have some shade of red on.  We also have a picnic table back there.  Funny thing is I have no recollection of ever using it.  I will have to consult my parents to see if we ever used it.80s 004

Oh yes I remember our swing set. We used to play all sorts of games. We also had a picnic table, and we did use it quite a lot.
