Swinging like Monkeys

Since the kids don't have soccer or gymnastics to rush to after school, the crazy Dads decided to construct a swing from the halyards of Bravado and Kamaya. The kids swung like monkeys and the Moms sailed away in the little Peerys (sailing dinghy), afraid to look.
"We swung really high and after it was my turn, I got to squirt the next person with a water hose. It was really fun," reports Monkey Kai. "I hope we can set it up again."
