  4. Michelle says

    Me too! πŸ™‚

  5. Elaine A. says

    He’s cute up there (mainly because he’s so cute) but it still makes me a little nervous. I’m a worry wart, forgive me! : )

  19. Carebear says

    Cute! Nothing makes a boy seem quite as happy as climbing, does it?

  20. Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting says

    Beautiful shot. My children are little tree monkeys too. Heck, they get it from me, because I was at their age, too. I might not be able to anymore, but momma could climb a tree. Oh yes, momma could πŸ˜‰

  21. Following Him says

    Tammie totally rocks my world. Adorable WW!!!

  22. Carissa(GoodnCrazy) says

    Nice Tree. Oh kid too!

    And from below. Get this. All three of my kids wake to their own alarm clocks. I’m not kidding. I don’t set an alarm clock anymore? They are like little weird robots, I swear?

    Youngest will climb in with us in middle of the night but not so bad lately.. he really likes to sleep in a room with a sibling, then he doesn’t find us as often!

  23. We have a photo tree in our woods. I should post the photos I took of Cade when he was small and was able to squeeze into it. I love this photo. He is so cute.

  24. His smile is PRICELESS!

  25. DysFUNctional Mom says

    So cute! My kids love climbing trees, and so did I.

  26. Adorable photograph in the tree.

  27. Hootin' Anni says

    Oh my gosh…that photo is so perfect. In every way!!!! I bet he enjoyed posing for that photo shoot!!!

    My Wordful is posted. It’s a bit comical and brings on a whole new meaning of “Hang in there”!!!

    Have a terrific Wednesday.

  28. My children used to love to climb trees too, and I always found it a little nerve wracking πŸ™‚

  29. very cute. we’re big tree climbers, too. no broken bones… yet. tell him to knock on some wood while he’s up there!

  30. What a great shot! I used to love to climb trees, too!!!

  31. What a great shot! I used to love climbing trees when I was little. It was so much fun to dream about having an elaborate treehouse and living with the birds and squirrels πŸ™‚

  32. Oh, that’s a great photo…brings back lots of childhood memories for me! I’m so happy to be participating in Wordful Wednesdays, again, this week!

  33. Oh the joys of being a kid. I want to climb trees again too.

  37. Ronda's Rants says

    So cute…I remember climbing so high once…I had to wait till my Dad got home form work to get me down!

  38. Jean Stockdale says

    Great picture. Thanks for hosting this event. It is my first time and think it is a great idea. I added a link to your site and “followed you.” I am a SITS commenter and I snagged your button. When you get a moment click over to my site and see if you might want to get my button and link to my site. I write to encourage MOMS as they train up the next generation. Blessings as you blog.

  39. He looks like he had fun! The joys of being a kid. πŸ™‚

  40. Live.Love.Eat says

    This reminds me how my son has never climbed a tree. I guess we don’t have climbable trees or he’s just not that adventurous. Great picture though. Is this from the same photo shoot from all the others. Wow, you got a lot of good ones.

  41. Maria@Conversations with Moms says

    He looks like he is having so much fun. What an adorable smile. This picture reminds me of when I was a kid and not afraid of anything.

  42. great reminder–i used to love to climb trees, too, and now my son does and i get scared about it.

  43. Those are some of my favorite shots too. What a cute little monkey you’ve got there!

  44. So cute! He’s having so much fun!!

  45. My brother loved to climb trees…in fact, he climbed a pine tree in the mountains of Colorado once. He got scared and wanted my dad to get him. But, the limbs were too short to hold my dad, so we had to talk him down, all the while he was about 4 or 5 stories up. The very ironic thing is…before he came down, my mom HAD to get a picture of him. I am sure she would have blogged about it had she had one at the time!

  46. Stephanie says

    One of my favorite climbing trees memories from childhood involves purple stains on clothes, fingers, and faces. We had a huge mulberry tree on my parent’s farm, and spent many lazy summer days perched in it!

    Cute pic!

  47. Sweet Serendipity says

    There’s nothing like a good climbing tree. Great shot, priceless!

  48. ChefDruck says

    He looks so happy up in that tree! but so mischievous too.

    I got my post up earlier today… let’s see how the rest of the day goes!

  49. Hello, I just got my post up. This the first time I have done this. I found this on another blog and wanted to play along. Great idea. Have a wonderful day.

  54. Kacey R. says

  59. Wayfaring Wanderer says

    Me too! One time, I even fell out of one and had to go to the hospital….YIKES!

  60. What a cute picture! My oldest is into tree climbing, cant wait for the younger ones to be big enough to join in! I think! That means 3 times the e.r visits.

  61. Julie@Cool Mom Guide says

    What a great picture! I love his hair and smile, he reminds me of my brother when we were kids.

  62. I was a tree climber right up through my college days… I remember skipping a Philosophy class one day, I ran into the professor after the missed class and he asked where I was… I admitted that I was climbing trees and he told me that it was a much better use of my time…

  63. I have a herd of tree climbers as well, but I don’t ever remember climbing trees myself. Love your picture! Thanks for hosting.

  64. awww, how cute!! I have a little tree-climber…monkey too!!
    I swear, you all have the best red hair….I love it!!

  65. I also use to love climbing in trees and was lucky to have a great climbing tree when I live at home. My son loves to climb also I just wish we had bigger trees

  66. blueviolet says

    I used to love climbing in trees also! I never had good climbing trees for my own kids though in any of the houses we’ve lived in. Your little guy is lucky!

  67. How I miss those days, of watching my kids climb trees! They loved it!

  68. Great picture! My girls haven’t started that yet. Thank goodness! lol!

  69. Gunnisac Sandersons says

    Do you remember the tree house in Manti? I used to love to go up in the tree house. Now i have this huge fear of heights! Too cute!

  70. Kathleen W. says

    I was a tree climber too! Now I’m mostly a tree hugger (yuk yuk yuk).

  71. Colleen - Mommy Always Wins says

    Very cute shot! Can’t wait till spring comes back to SE Wisconsin!!!

  72. So cute! The essence of childhood- for me- is climbing trees.
    I wonder if I still could? I would probably get stuck!

  73. Oh I used to LOVE climbing trees too! Great picture!

  74. Indigo Children says

  77. Lori of I'm no super Mom says

    Climbing trees is so fun! He is adorable!

  78. Mrs.Naz@BecomingMe says

    Gorgeous photo!!

  79. My boys are not old enough to climb yet but I was a monkey in a tree so I wouldn’t expect anything less from them.

  80. I still climb magnolia trees…they are the best for scaling…strong, sturdy branches that are low to the ground. Good times.

  81. My kids love to climb them too…its the getting down they don’t like!

  82. That picture is so cute!

  83. MommyAmy says

    Such a cute picture! And such an adventurous little boy! πŸ™‚

  84. I’m late entering today! I think I actually got my link right as well! I’m on a roll. πŸ™‚

  85. He’s so darn cute! I used to have a tree that was only mine…. No siblings allowed! πŸ™‚ Great shot!


  86. Brenda Jean says

    That is such a cool picture! I want to make the kids a treehouse SO bad, but I’m not sure we have a tree that will really work. My inlaws cut down a willow tree that was awesome for the kids to climb. Grrrrrr…I was mad, but it is their tree so I guess I can’t complain:)

  87. girlytwins says

    So adorable as always! You really did get some amazing pictures from Tammie. She did such a wonderful job with your family.

  88. Great picture!! I used to love to climb trees too:-)

  94. Honey Mommy says

    I used to like climbing trees too. Luckily my boys are a bit young for it at the moment!

  95. Krazy Armstrong K's! says

  105. Casey's trio says

    Too cute!

  106. I love this pic. It reminds me of the days I was a major tree climber myself and all of the neighborhood boys were afraid to climb trees.
    ….There I was safely perched at the top of a pecan tree. All of the boys struggled to climb the lower limbs as I pelted them with green pecans.

  107. Eudae-Mamia says

    I’m late!! But I’m here.

    The story of my life, really.

    Love the tree shot! Em

  108. Scribbit says

    What a fun picture–boys should be climbing trees.

  109. Churchill says

    Man I would be scared to go that high in a tree and I am 33!

  110. Great capture of a boy being a boy! Love it!

  111. Oh My Gosh! Those shots are awesome. ‘Nuff said!
