My kids have created a "vine" from which to swing from. They get the hose and drape it over the tree limb and away they go. It is quite entertaining. I wonder if they think they are like Tarzan (I'm sure Grant does). Here is Talmage getting ready to swing...

and here he has landed. He was too fast for my camera to catch him in the air :)

This is Grant swinging from vine to vine as he puts it. He is an agile kid :).

Being up high in the fort seems more like a tree house from this angle!

Sandra wanted a turn going from vine to vine, but she needed a little help. Thanks Daddy Tarzan for helping :)!
Talmage really wanted Daddy to get out his big ladder so he could climb the tree. I'm sure the ladder would've helped, but not the same thing as climbing a tree :). I think he would like it if our willow tree had lower branches for him to get started with. I'm glad he can't quite climb it yet. One less thing for me to worry about him falling from!

I didn't have an email to send this to. So this is the only place I could think of. Here is the Mother's Play Group my ward has and the activity we're doing this month that I talked about. I thought you'd might be interested.

We will visit the Amon Carter Museum this month and take advantage of the cultural introduction of the arts for our children and enjoy the cool indoor weather. The address is 3501 Camp Bowie Blvd and the museum is at the corner of Camp Bowie and Lancaster. Strollers are welcomed and if you park in the South parking lot off Lancaster you can access the ramp. Plan to meet inside the main entrance at 10:15 and our group can enjoy the events together.

The museum offers a few themed stories each week in rooms alongside art that follows the same theme. Then they provide an art project for the children to complete and cookies & lemonade at the end. The indoor events last apx 45 minutes… Afterwards, our children can play on the large grassy area or roll down the hill in the front of the building and we can visit together. Remember to bring water to enjoy outside the museum as the children play.

Wednesday, July 23, 10:30 am - Catch the Building Bug – Get excited by museum’s architecture, hear about an insect architect.

Wednesday, July 30, 10:30 am - Bears in the Building – Hear stories how art changes 2 bears’ lives, see a bear cub sculpture.

You are so good at keeping up on your blog! Every time I look at it there is something new to see. You are absolutely amazing. Thanks for the comments on my blog. It is good to know what is going on with your family. I've never been very good at keeping in touch but I think this will help a lot! Thanks again.
