We have a jungle gym!



In our front yard we have a monstrous old magnolia. I mean ginormously huge with the inside perfect for play and climbing. It's just one of those magical trees. The girls had played in it some but not enough in my opinion to fully appreciate what they had. So the other day I forced them into the interior and made them stay until it dawned on them just how cool it was. Finally, they declared "we have a jungle gym"! I wanted to reply "well, duh" but I refrained and now it's a favorite spot. I imagine when the weather warms up a bit that old tree is going to host quite a few tea parties and be home to multiple tents and hammocks, I only wish it was in the fenced inpart of the yard.

That is great! In NC when we were kids we had a huge Magnolia Tree we used to climb in all the time! I like the 2nd picture where Evie looks like she is pretty high up in the tree! Cute!

It is a magical tree. How awesome! I have lots of great memories of climbing in trees and the adventures that happened in them.
