The Willy Tree

So we have this big willow tree in our back yard. It has saved us thousands of dollars on toys, movies, vacations and other forms of entertainment. It's pretty much the kids' favorite pasttime ever. They climb on it, they swing from it, they hold secret meetings under it, they torment the birds that live in it, they examine the bugs that cling to it, they even spy on the neighbors from high atop branches... that tree provides never ending entertainment.

When my oldest Knucklehead was a wee boy, he mistakenly called it the "Willy Tree", of course from that moment on we never referred to it as anything else. Now that my little Daredevilette has learned to climb (with a little boost from brother), we're in for a whole new level of adventure!

Such a cool place to play. When I was young, the willow was my favorite place to read...
Thanks for bringing back memories.
