Tree Climbing Boys

At my house I believe that boys should be boys. So this is what boys think is fun, safe entertainment! They like to climb trees, just to find a weak limb that they can swing and bounce on enough that it breaks out from under them and they fall to the ground along with the limb. Then they get up laughing and proud of themselves for their great accomplishment. And if one of them is not enough to get that stubborn limb down then we will just try it with both at the same time. Miraculously we have never had any broken bones or any other major injuries, YET! But I really do think that if you let kids play and do things and they aren't scared then you are less likely to get hurt. I think that some injuries happen when parents are to over protective and then kids sneak and do it with out supervision. Here are some pictures of my dare devils at work.

Oh and just a funny side note. Carter is wearing the Superman shirt and everyday when he gets home he puts his Spider-man costume on under his clothes. So that way at any moment he can find his secret place to hide and become a Super Hero that saves people. He says that is just want Super heroes do. If you look really close at the picture of both of them hanging together, you can see the black Spider-Man suit wear Carter's pants are falling off! I just think this is so cute and funny and I love the way he uses his imagination and plays.

Those are cool pictures of the boys in trees. It makes me wish I was a young kid again. I was a very shy boy growing up and so, I didn't spend as much time on the monkey bars or in trees. But now, as an adult with a little kid still in me, I sometimes ride my bike in my bare feet to feel younger!
