Slack Lining at the Dunns

I love my husband very very much. Not just because of how awesome he is and how much he makes me laugh, but because he comes up with ideas like building a slack line in the middle of our backyard. What is a slack line you might ask??? Just think of two poles with a very tight piece of webbing strung between them. Very carefully, you are supposed to walk across the webbing from one pole to another....kinda like a tight rope. The webbing is only like three feet off the ground (yes, I know you can have rather large injuries from falling from thee feet). This is just out beginners slack line...we hope to be able to do this by the end of summer:


I'm really not serious about walking on the slack line thousands of feet off the ground...I think three feet will suffice for the moment.
