Did you have a swing in your backyard when you were a kid? Do you have one now for your own children/grandchildren?

My grandson is currently twisting the ropes on ours, then spinning while giggling like mad.

    We had a swing set - 2 swings, a slide, a teeter totter and a 2-seat swing.  My brother completely destroyed it.

    I've always lived in apartment buildings so there were no backyards, but he playgrounds had swings.

      No and no. We’re empty-nesters now, and have only had swings in the back yard of one place we lived in, it was at base housing when I was on active duty. It was already there when we moved in, and I think it may have been shared by both houses in the duplex.

    1. No, we lived across the street from the elementary school and the playground was visible from all the windows on one side of the house.  We played over there and mom could always see us. 

    2. Yes, but not at home.  We have two porch swings at our new family country house.

    3. No.  We had swings, both manufactured and those that hang from trees, for our own kids.  This post was edited by Thriftymaid at August 18, 2022 11:32 PM MDT

    When I was a kid, I had a tyre on a rope that was hanging from a tree. My brother fell off of it twice. He fell off all of the playground equipment.
