Orme continued adding features, and today, his 6-year-old triplets--Gareth, Meredith and Callum--offer the coolest play date in town. Kids can jump into a cargo net, dash across a suspension bridge to a fort, shoot down a slide made of slick aluminum siding, or rip 130 ft. through the woods in a swing seat clipped to a zip line.

What a raging good time! (6-year-old triplets???!!!)

BTW and quite off topic: while web surfing about dogs, I discovered that english bulldog pugs are very expensive! Well over $1,000!!! On the other hand, I discovered that rare colored chihuahuas are well over $2,000!!! (No way Jose'! ;) ). Insane! :D

I laced up our camphor tree with about 750' of 1/4" line with nets on three different levels. The girls were 4-8 and slept in the tree a couple summers. Tossing up cushions and carpets it made a good nest.

I will say you must have married well, most stay at home Dad / carpenters couldn't afford $3grand for a tree house and what ever $$ you have in that Penobscot 17 :eek:

I'd say she a keeper ;) The wife that is.
