About a year ago, I decided to update my backyard for my daughter, who is not so little anymore. I did some research and finally decided to replace the rusty old swingset that bumped when you swung too high with a tee pee and a gigantic rock (see here). The tee pee did not hold up so well to the rain and the rock, sadly, was not such a big hit. So, I decided to add one more upgrade to the backyard: a tetherball pole. I remember playing tetherball back in elementary school and loved it. I think this game is going to bring lots of fun times to our backyard!
