Eric spent 12 hours today building a tree house. It was decided a couple of months ago that rather than camping or an outing, the agenda for the weekend would be building a tree house. On Saturday he and Chad put up the supporting beams and today Ridge and Cannon were his main helpers. Ridge was out with Eric for most of the day.
We ate dinner together in the new addition. The girls were so excited to finally be able to join in the fun. There were still a few hours of construction left at this point but it was safe enough for the sisters.
At this point the only entrance to the tree house is through Cannon's window. The ladder will come later. We're not sure what this does to the monetary value of our house but it will add a lot of fun for the summer. This is the view from the tree house looking in the window.
And here is the view looking out the window. There is a ramp and rails right when you step out of the window. Don't you love Laine's pose? And this is at the end of the day, so Eric is exhausted at this point. What a great dad.
Ridge made this sign. I'm sure he'll always be proud of his first major construction project.
And a little video that was captured in the morning, starring Cannon.
