Who could ever forget that super tall hot metal slide? I used to jump in the sprinklers and then slide down to try ease the burn.

Hot sun on metal slides, you knew it would hurt, but you still went. Dress, skirt or shorts.feel the burn on your buns and the wind in your hair at the same time!

When was the last time you saw a swing like that? RESTFUL PLACES - an old fashioned back yard glider with two benches.

You know you had a good childhood when you fall over after getting off lol

Playground days We had gravel under our playground equipment, lots of scraped up knees but we all survived. Kids playgrounds now have mulch or shredded tires to land on when they fall.

These were as uncomfortable as they were ugly! Dad would reweb as they became worn.

Chaise lounge in the backyard wearing baby oil.

Who remembers swinging so high the poles lifted up out of the ground? (Sometimes scared me a little, but not enough to quit doing it!)

I had this exact swing set as a kid.too funny.

I loved the merry-go-round!

Merry go round. Oh memories flood my mind, take me back to simple times of smiles, laughter, carefree days when nothing else mattered but my children at play! Ahhhh yes,the merry go round .

Remember "Baton Twirling?" you would practice and practice... quite often you would drop it on your foot, or on the ground; if you threw it in the air and missed catching it, it would either hit the ground or your face.:-)

- Baton when they were metal. Mom enrolled Viki and I in baton twirling lessons!

I loved these old hot slides...lol !

10 Things I Grew Up With That My Kids Will Never Know About.

The other day while Greta was playing on the iPad, I realized that there are things in my memory that were kid staples growing up, that.

Do kids today even know what outside is?

Rolling down the hill - best fun ever This is so true and we never got hurt or broke out necks, but I bet most kids today have never enjoyed this simple pleasure. Too bad as adults we can't just go out on break at work and roll down the nearest hill

omg I had one just like this that my daddy built for be the only difference is mine was green

Swing set chair with safety bar

monkey bars!! I remember the blisters...But I.got 2 broken arms , hanging upside-down & falling

Metal monkey bars on the school playground. We had the asphalt playground underneath. Many skinned knees!
