Yes, I’d like them in a tree

by Jennifer on March 30, 2009

And to think…I used to have to talk them into going outside. Now, I’m pretty sure they run the neighborhood from here.

P.S. Yes, this is what passes for a tree in our neighborhood.  If this tree were in high school, it would spend half the day stuffed inside a locker.

I love how she’s dressed for tree climbing. And they look like they’re in serious story mode.

I love your tree and I know about trees. If they are much bigger, it renders them unclimbable. That’s my take.

They are so cute.

I like the tree, and whatever it takes to get them outside!

I think this is the first time I’ve seen pics of your kids. And I’m loving them.

Your tree is sporting a cactus under it. Your kids like to live on the EDGE! LOL. Love the accessory – my girls would drag up their pets too.

Hahaha! If this tree was in high school it would spend half its day stuffed in a locker! Where do you come up with these lines?

Just today my daughter dylan was BEGGING me to let her climb a tree at the park and I had to tell her that it’s illegal to climb trees in the NYC which is actually true. I need to get that poor girl to the suburbs.

soooo cute. None of the trees around here are very “climbable” which means I am hoisting children up to high branches so they can fulfill their dream of tree climbing…and then I hang out below afraid I might have to catch.

There is no tree in OUR yard that would support a child, even Chicklet. So that tree isn’t so bad.

I LOVE the last two pictures.

Look at the girl with the pretty curls, and the oh-so-boy, boy! I’ve climbed a few trees like that in my day. Takes more skill and confidence because of the potentially rough landing (see cactus). Great photos!

I would so make that tree give me its lunch money.

STILLLLL, I begrudgingly admit it is the perfect size for climbing.

Also, love the pics! This is the first time I’ve seen your kids! A-door-able.

Too wonderful. So nice of those kids to keep that old tree company. :

Nothing like sitting in a tree and looking out at the world.

Love these pics . . . AND the tree. We have a reasonable amount of outside space, but no REALLY good climbing tree.
