Yesterday mum took us out for the day. It was the prefect day, a picnic by the river followed by a walk around a garden opened by the NGS at a large manor house. I'll do a post on the two and a half acre walled garden later, but needless to say it was amazing.
One great part was the tree house, This is the type of tree house that kids dream of. It's about 20ft up a ladder and then a really quick slide back down.
I was really surprised as both the girls loved being up there, I thought they might be scared of how high it was, but not at all!

I've now got to scout out my trees and decide which one is best to build a tree house in. The children are a bit young yet but no harm in planning! My brother and me used to have an amazing one in a couple of yew trees, in reality it was just a few planks up a tree but in our mind it was a pirate ship, a castle and a fortress! We used to love being up there and mum used to give us a few biscuits to take up with us in a tin that we used to guard before eating them! Dave loved climbing trees so much he even took it up as a job!
Did you have a tree house as a child?
