When I was young, I never stayed inside. I had to be in trouble to be inside the house.
We had a pool, huge swing set, neighbor had a trampoline, roller bladed a lot, skate boarded tons (until I broke my ankle the last time), lizard hunting (green anoles), made a tree house, lawn darts were cool, rode my bike everywhere, played in the fields/near the bayous lookin for turtles, ....
I did tons of stuff as a kid most kids dont dare do today... odd.
