Growing up in the country, our back woods and pasture were my playground. My little brother and I would play all day in the trees, climbing them or making a treehouse out of a hollowed out stump. We begged my dad to build us a treehouse, but that never happened until the grandkids came along.

Treehouse of my childhood dreams

The treehouse he built was like a kid resort. It had a wrap around deck, carpet, electricity, television, air-conditioning/heat, landscaping, swing, and slide. It was insane. My brother and I just shook our heads. If only we had been lucky enough to have played in a treehouse like the one he built for his grandchildren.

I guess, technically, we did get a treehouse. We just had to wait for in invite from our kids to be able to play in it.

Adult treehouse fantasy

My favorite pace to travel to is the mountains. I will take the mountains over the beach, every time. I have often thought about what it would be like to have an adult treehouse. You know, one like the build on the treehouse show. Living an adult, modernized version, with all the amenities, Swiss Family Robinson life, would be so awesome. I would be in heaven.
