Did any of you ever have a tree house growing up?  I did when I lived in Michigan.  I had many adventures playing in it. Most of the memories are of me playing for hours by myself in my tree house in the woods.

We don’t really have a woods behind our house but this past weekend Emma and I went looking at some of the treeline there and you’ll never guess what we found.  Across a creek/ditch was the perfect tree.  It has always been there but I never noticed it until we actually looked for a place for a tree house.

So what does this mom do?  Yup you guessed it.  I built my daughter a tree house.  Dave says it’s more like a deer stand but hey who’s counting?  Besides he’s not allowed to have an opinion since he did not help!  I’ll post a picture soon.  I can’t take all the credit.  My dad helped me get the boards up yesterday.  So now my girls have that place that they can go to use their imagination and have many wonderful adventures that hopefully when they are adults will also have very fond memories as well.  It’s just a start but hopefully we’ve got a great foundation to build on.
