What the kid does when Mama goes away.

He climbs trees. Really tall trees. All by himself.

The photo below is actually 2 photos from Bryan’s cell phone spliced together because the tree was too freaking tall to get into one shot.

I had to put my head between my knees when I saw it.

But how cool is that?

And P.S. I had a great time in Chicago, had too much food, too many drinks and too many laughs. Photos and updates coming tomorrow after I get some more sleep.

    Man, I remember climbing some of those trees. Guess I knew “the tricks only little boys know”!

    So I was thinking “mmm, I can’t see Bryan in the tree – he must be in the back” and then it occurred to me that he was likely the person holding the cell phone and then I about passed out. Good for Dex!

    Joansy – TELL ME ABOUT IT.

    He had our friend Kelly and her 3 YEAR OLD spotting him.

    But, Bryan swears to me that the tree has a gazillion branches to catch his fall. Like that made me feel any better.
