Snowy backyard

I have so many photos of my backyard over the years.  Now I just need to find them and put them here.  The back of our house faces west so we see a lot of great sunsets and also can watch the storms moving in.  We also like to take pictures of the snow accumulation in the backyard.  The pine trees in the back left were planted when I was little and I used to jump over them.  Now they are over twice my height!  The big branchy tree in the back on the end is my oak tree.  My mom put a tire swing up for us and I've been climbing that tree since I was about 8.  (She put a rope ladder up because my little sister couldn't climb it - I used to pull it up so she couldn't bother me). 

The snowy pics are actually taken during different snow storms, probably different years even. 

I found some great old photos from about 1983 and 1985.  I used to spend most of my time outdoors playing when I was little.  This included the swing set, sand box, and of course, my oak tree.  Our front yard was even the neighborhood baseball field, using trees as bases.
