i'm fortunate to have a large, fenced in backyard where my children have been spending lots of time digging, picking, stomping, planting, swinging, playing and now climbing. jaya has been anxiously awaiting the day when she'll be able to climb the tree all by herself. (it's a great tree for climbing, i must add!) but until then, she was excited to be "placed" in the tree. her siblings, kari and melvin and our neighbor, eve, joined her.
