 That was outside playing... YES they were on bikes and skateboards having a blast. They didn't have a phone duct tape to their ears or a video game. No TV and the best part was they were laughing and being kids.

For those who are rolling your eyes at this post might see teenagers outdoors playing BUT when it is 100 degrees heat index most are NOT outdoors.  Plus it is rare to see more than 3 (there was about 10 kids) teenagers outside playing. You see them walking to the store or to a friends BUT not biking and running with skateboards.

Do you see teenagers out playing?

Just goes to show you that they are still kids at that age. I never see kids that age out playing like that. You're like some sort of wildlife photographer who lucked out and witnessed some unusual behavior in a species! LOL!

 Sometimes I see them but not often. 
My ds is 19 and his friends were all over here (the usual hang out place) and they actually got their butts off the couch went to the store and bought water balloons and had a water ballon fight in our backyard.  It was nice to see them do something else besides messing with their iphones/ipods and watching TV!

We do, between sports seasons, all the kids in the cul-de-sac are outside. Quite a few are in the 12-16 age range, and they will scooter/bike/throw a football around with the rest of them. Probably less so when they turn 16 and can drive/work, but ours are mostly younger teens.

Usually we see two or three when we go to the park. But rarely a "gang" of them in the hot weather. I do like seeing kids out riding and playing rather than sitiing indoors playing video games....

We live by a park and every evening they play basketball. And there is usually a large group watching as well.
