The Banyan Tree

Yesterday Zac was at work. I had tons of errands to run and dragged the kids around with me everywhere. I do believe in rewarding good behavior and because the kids were so well behaved I took them somewhere we haven't been in two years...our Banyan Tree swing.

Anne 2005---------------------Anne 2007

Andrew and Mom 2005------------------- Andrew 2007

For those of you who haven't seen a Banyan Tree I thought I would include a picture. These really are the most amazing trees. The tree sends out it's roots from the branches which grow down to the ground then into the ground forming a new trunk. The last time we visited this tree I think it might have been wider. They must have trimmed it back...so sad. Looking at the pictures from both visits I just can't believe that Anne was Andrew's age and Andrew was just a little guy. I can't believe how much they both have grown without me noticing.
