 Now for today's project.  Many of you know that even though I do not have children of my own,  for some reason I am the kid magnet in the neighborhood.  I captured these pictures of these two little guys climbing the tree in my front yard.  The kids actually knock on my door and say "Miss Teen Teen, can we climb your tree?"  Although these photos were taken in early spring before everything started to bloom...being a kid and climbing trees definitely spells SUMMER FUN!
