Tree House Vacancy Is Too Tempting

A morning exploration of the yard led to an unexpected surprise – a tree house vacancy. Landon couldn’t let this opportunity slip away.

Whoa - A tree house vacancy!

Whoa – A tree house vacancy!

The tree house is a special spot usually reserved by Frankie or, less often, Typhoon. It’s a great spot to get away from everyone else and have a view over the field. So imagine young Landon’s surprise when he realized his brothers were inside the house and the tree house was unoccupied.

Wow, the view is great from up here.

With his brothers inside, no one would ever know that he had been up there, right?
