{TREE} House!

As a child, we are naturally so full of wonder and play. Everywhere we go there is an adventure waiting to happen and we don’t have a care in the world. We put our shoes on, we go outside and “oh look! a frog!”
Around every corner there is a story to be told, another picture to be painted and tons of fun to be had.
This world has recently opened up to me now that my daughter is a full-time walker.
As grown-ups we miss that ‘wonder’ as we get older. That fun and excitement of trying to find the best nook to hideaway in, or the way sleeping under a fort of blankets was amazing and of course nobody would find us there.
The older we get the more responsibility is given us to us and the further that world fades away.
In honour of that world and way of life that we miss, this post is geared to get us one step back to where we grew up.
Didn’t we all just wish we had a Treehouse? I mean the literal house, not the t.v. channel.
Just like the places I mentioned earlier that we could hide-away in. The treehouse was one of those places full of adventure and wonder. It also usually came with a ‘no parents allowed’ sign on the door too, so there was no chores in sight.
This was what the typical treehouse would’ve been like…

Pretty sweet on its own, right? Just a small area in a tree, with a way to get up there and some space to play marbles or jacks and think of some extravagant re-enactment of ‘house’ or “Power Rangers.”

Nowadays the treehouses I’ve seen surfacing online are more of the extravagant part! Take a look…

AMAZING! These parents are truly invested in their child’s play! Or is it that they kind of want to re-visit ‘play’ for themselves as well?

They even have some gorgeous interiors…

I mean really, if your treehouse look this good, why have a REAL house?! Just add some indoor plumbing and you’re all set!

If that’s not your kind of thing but you’d still like to give the space for your child’s adventures to be had, check out another option!
TREEHOUSES INDOOR!

Essentially all you’d need to do is build walls around the top portion of a bunk bed and voila! Isn’t that such a neat idea?! I think we’ll be doing this for our kids when they are a little older.

Well Edgers,
I hope you were taken back on a journey to your childhood today. I hope it was magical and full of wonderful and funny memories of how your scavengered the world with fun and games.

Until next time!
