Some Homes Have It All!

Some kids just know how to have fun! Dinner is ready..(santa hat?)
This house has it all!!
A broom made from bamboo leaves.
High tech construction.
The house...
The gym.
Outdoor seating..
Lookout tower..(that's our home in the back left)

Swing..(and someone to push you)
more outdoor seating..
a bridge..
and trees to climb!

Today I am Thankful that our girls enjoy being outside!!


Amy said...

Looks like they had a fun day being outside!

Cher' Shots said...

I love it! I wish more kids would use their imaginations and enjoy nature. Can you tell I'm an OLD country girl at heart? I spent hours playing outside.

Susie said...

Looks like fun to me. It looks like ya'll had a nice day to be outside.

G'eve DArla ~ BOY! does this resurrect memories of my youth! Didn't know kids still had imaginations & enjoyed the outdoors ... chuckle!

They are obviously having a grand time ... good for them.

Have a wonderful week.
TTFN, Hugs ~Marydon

Tootsie said...

Twisted Fencepost said...

Boy does this post bring back memories!! Thank you!

Meems said...

Great places to explore... and wonderful the kids are OUTSIDE ~~~Fun stuff with lots of fun memories for them.

Dorothy said...

Your kids are re-living my childhood! We used to pull down those trees like that and also build play houses out of whatever we could find. It's good to see them enjoying the great outdoors!

Julie said...

Oh my...how fun is this? I love when kids have an imaginary, active, and fun life!!! Awesome!!!

I think my oldest daughter would fit right in with your girls. So much of what you show your 11 (I thinks she's 11?)year old doing is exactly what mine does. I love that girls still go outside climb trees and build forts at this age. So many grow up so fast and don't enjoy being a kid. You must be a great influence on them :)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I love it Darla... So many kids these days aren't creative anymore and don't play outside at all. They are glued to the TV or to their cellphones or to a video game, etc....Your kids/friends looked like they were having a GREAT time together. How much fun is that!!!! You are SUCH a great Mama.


Cyndy said...

Love your post - half my childhood was spent out in the woods, making forts and forming and disbanding secret clubs. It's great kids are still out in the woods doing kid things!

How wonderful, Darla! Just like Tarzan swinging from the vines! Yes, thankful for the love of outdoors, you have taught them well, my friend! :-)

Meems said...

Yes, real spurs~~Ha!
Can you e-mail me~~ I don't see an e-mail address for you on your site... wanted to send you something.

Darla: How great that the girls love nature like their mother. What a great little house.

tina said...

Adorable! Not the post I expected though.

Gail said...

So much to be thankful for in your part of the garden. The woods are the best place for kids to play and learn. Gail

George said...

It's nice to see that some youngsters can have fun without a computer, cellphone or video game! The girls built a wonderful house.

Lois said...

How fun Darla! I remember when my kids used to make tents in the backyard. I miss those days!

Becca's Dirt said...

Looks like they had a great time enjoying being outside this weekend. Great weekend for it too. I spent most of my weekend outdoors too soaking up some sun while working.

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

Now that is the way we use to play as kids. It is so good to see your out enjoying the nearby woods and having fun.

marmee said...

i love the imagination...it is able to conjure up so many things.
looks like a party i would what to come to.
happy march.

Noelle said...

Such great memories of playing outside in a constructed 'fort'. I love that this has not changed over the years :^)

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I grew up with woods all around our home. We had so much fun just like your girls are. Good memories!

bennie and patsy said...

Glad to see them having so much. I think you did too.

Bren said...

I miss doing those sheet tents... enjoy it while it last right?!

Happy ALmost spring!

Anonymous said...

What fun! I sure remember those days of playing outside all day, with no toys needed.

Anonymous said...

But Darla, I didn't see any cell phones. No ear buds protruding from the sides of their heads. I'm curious what planet your girls are from. :) Obviously their mother is doing something right when girls of this age would rather be in the woods instead of on the computer. A refreshing post, Darla.

Tom said...

It is a very rare site to see children play like this here in the UK... our children seem to grow up far to quick and miss out on their childhood... character building like this will last them a lifetime and the bonds formed through social playing will stand them well in life. Great pictures and post Darla....

Kathleen said...

That's so great Darla. It's imaginative, creative and innocent fun. All things I thought were almost gone!
