i still love tree houses.

leaf-covered latter

pretty little leaf
sweet brendan
beautiful wood, perfect tree house

Most of the appeal in visiting D.C. has to do with seeing our sweet friends who actually feel like family. Seeing Pam and Dave and their Irish-lad-twins* (Brendan and Liam) fills my heart to the brim. Brendan and I had the best time playing in the tree house, seeing who could swing higher (him), and admiring the fall foliage until we were attacked by a water-gun sniper (Liam) and were forced to run inside. Although I've had my fair share of positive and negative tree house experiences, I can't deny my love for them. They are magical.

*they even do Irish Step Dancing.
