A Gigantic Tree!

The pictures below are some shots of a very large tree that the Thomas guys are planning to help cut. I heard them talking about it sooooo much that I decided to go take a peek at what all the fuss was about. It was well worth it!
Samuel took off running. He was outside and free! This was his first time to wear overalls since he was a baby. He was NOT at all happy when he first put them on. By the end of the day, he decided that he loved them. Now he wants to wear them ALL the time!
Down the path to the Gigantic tree we go!

Some of the 'skinnier' branches.

I carefully climbed out on this very large tree branch....
...and two little kids followed right behind me. :) They simply have NO fear!
Sitting in front of part of the fallen tree. All of the branches you see in these pictures are from the same tree! Can you believe the size of this thing?!
Some more of the branches.
Look at the size of the tree trunk!

I'd love to go back here and get our family picture taken.
