Here is the hammock - ready to hang!
I drilled a starter hole in the tree
Then I screwed in a hook. Hindsight, I should have put in an eye, not a hook. I'm going to have to swap it out as the hook is widening. Live and learn!
I did the same on both sides and connected it with some chain.
The hammock is hung!
Here is what you see when you are laying on the hammock!
I hung it on the same tree as our tire swing.
Not sure if you can see it behind the tree, but it's there.
I love the tire swing and the hammock. They both just scream summer!
I had a tire swing as a kid and spent MANY hours on that swing.
I'm glad my girls get the same joy out of theirs.
