*Wordful Wednesday is for those of us that like to showcase a photo(s) but that just can’t seem keep our mouths shut about it(them). If you’d like to play along, post a photo on your blog, and let the words roll.

My children love to climb trees.
I love to watch them.
It reminds me of me. I used to love to climb trees, too.

    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! : )

    I love people willing to climb trees! As a photographer, it puts a whole new perspective to a photo and adds a dose of fun!

    I used to love climbing trees too (back when my knees didn’t buckle every time I moved. LOL)
    My boys are all tree climbers and fort builders.

    That’s an awesome picture of a very happy guy!

    Happy WW!

    What a happy little camper you have! And if climbing trees runs in the family, mine will thankfully be staying on the ground. 🙂

    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 😉

    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!

    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 🙂

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.

    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.

    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.

    Cathy says

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

    Allison says

    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!

    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!

    What a great picture! I loved climbing trees too. There was a huge magnolia tree at my friend's house that was perfect & sturdy. A lot of fun was had in that tree!

    Marla @ Stolen Bon Bons says

    Great picture! I live in a house full of monkeys too. Mine are always in the trees. And from time to time I will still do climb up in the trees with them.

    Nicole says

    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.

    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.

    Cristin says

    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…

    Lorie says

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

    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

    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!

    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!

    Caitlin says

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

    Steph at Problem Solvin' Mom says

    What a fabulous picture! It just seems to capture the essense of childhood…

    Nina says

    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.

    Lula! says

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

  40. 85

    Rachel says

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

    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:)

    my son and daughter keep trying to climb the trees in our yard – but they are too small really or WAY TOO BIG!!!

    Kally says

    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.
