My mom got me this great swing for the backyard for my birthday. It has two chairs, but you can swing out the base so they are more like lounge chairs. The bottom of the foot rest part has wheels, so you barely move your feet and you swing. In between the two seats there is a basket, and a table that swings around to be used by either occupant. It is also covered by a nice movable awning. LOVE IT! I set it up yesterday afternoon, but tonight was the first time we got to use it.

Matthew was playing in the back yard, my mom was sitting in a chair, and Michael and I were swinging. Matthew had to go in to use the bathroom, and mom went in for something or other.

Michael and I were kicked back rocking, with the twinkling white Christmas lights all around the inside of the gazebo, the mosquito netting blowing in the breeze, the puppy dogs laying a few feet from us, and the sun setting. Michael turned to me, and goodness only knows where he got this from, but he put his hands behind his head and asked:

"Mom, is this paradise?"

Yes, Michael, it's pretty damn close.
