That was a big tree!

I took the liberty to browse all your photos.  They made me home sick!

Growing up in western Pennsylvania is far different than living in Texas (as I have for the past 30 years)!  The trees here rarely grow higher than 20 feet because of the harsh weather conditions in the summer.  I am still not sure if I miss all the snow however, as I still have nightmarish dreams of having to shovel that stuff before school every day when I was a kid!  Haha!

Oh, BTW:  cute family!
