A Thousand Words Thursday


June, 2005 Every year we camp on the beach. The site we reserve has the most amazing tree we've dubbed the "climbing" tree. The kids have a blast on it and it becomes the center for imagination. Looking for our next trip this fall and reserving that same spot that provides hours of extra fun!

    How fun. Tara loves trees like that. My niece has a great tree in her yard that Tara discovered this weekend while playing with her cousins! She's such a tomboy sometimes!

    I love the monkeys!!!! Kids being kids is the best. Heck, I want to climb in that tree.

    Great shot! Mine is not half as good. It's plain yucky, in fact. ;)

    What a great shot! I was a tree climber when I was a kid - the Princess Nagger has tried to climb our apple tree out back a few times, but that tree the boys are in looks like the best climbing tree! ;)

  7. Colleen said...

    That tree looks like so much fun...and it is low so they can get in it a lot easier...Zach would love it!

  8. Dee said...

    I love big old trees..they make the best pictures! We have one that we take pictures on every time we go to the beach!

  14. Tara R. said...

    There is something special about trees and kids. I have great childhood memories about a willow tree at my grandparents house. Loved climbing that thing. I hope your kids have just as wonderful memories of their camping trips and their 'climbing tree.'

  15. Mel Fraase said...

    Oooh, that looks like fun! I've never camped on a beach...beaches being few and far between up here. I'll have to add it to the list!

    Family camping trips were always a major highlight in my childhood. And camping on the beach sounds like great fun! Your boys look like they are having the time of their lives!
    And what a great climbing tree.....I like it since it seems low to the ground but that's a "mom" talking! LOL!

  24. Sally said...

    Love the shot!!!
    Looks like a great climbing tree. I know you all have fun with that one. We had a tree all bent and crooked at our cabin when I was growing up, I know just how fun they can be!! Enjoy your trip back this fall!!

    My boy couldn't believe that was him! And, he's looking forward to going again this year - we'll see what happens with our vacation plans though ...

  28. mama's smitten said...

    Sounds like a great spot ? Is it local ? ( to us anyways?)Or is it a secret spot!!! LOL! We have never camped on the beach but were just considering it!

  29. Evolving Mommy Catherine said...

    That tree looks like a blast. I was just talking with a friend last night about how the thought of my daughter climbing trees scares the crap outta me...but that tree looks like the perfect tree for climbing!

  30. He And Me + 3 said...

    My son would totally dig that tree. Great picture. Too fun!

    Oh that's a pretty great tree! Our beach (in NJ)doesn't have trees, so that's pretty cool.

  36. Merrie said...

    I love that tree! I hope someday we can camp with you again. This year there's hope -- we bought a new tent last month, AND Rick is no longer in a fishing club that ruins half our weekends. Yay!

  37. Lady Mama said...

    I love that tree! I remember as a kid there was nothing I loved more than climbing a tree like that.

  38. Jennifer said...

    How fun! My husband and his family always used to camp out by the beach (we're from Northern California), but since we're out here in Vegas, we haven't had the chance to do it!

  39. Shana said...

    I LOVED trees like that as a kid!!
