Me and my dad built this tree house

Big tree house that kept getting bigger

Zach ,Micah, and Katelyn told their dad that they wanted a tree house. They started building together a small platform in a group of three trees. They finished rather quickly and decided to add a lower level for little Katelyn. From there they decided to make another platform in another group of three trees. When they completed that they connected the two tree houses with a bridge, and then added a climbing wall to get up and a slide to get down. Neighborhood kids love the tree house and would tell us that they wished they had a dad like ours.

What a tree House!! I know that my own kids would love it. It takes a special dad to build something that will make so many great memories. A dad this great has all of the qualities of his own father. I know that you will pass this on to them.

Well, his parents have to weigh in. We are proud of our son and of the love and dedication he gives to his family. He is a busy working dad who gives his all to his kids. The tree house is only one example. We are proud of him. Good luck!

Good luck!!! I lived next door to this dad when he was a little boy. He was a neat kid, and has turned out to be an awesome dad. He is a dedicated family man and is extremely committed to anything he does.

I, too, know this person, and he deserves the honor of greatest dad. In all he does, he gives his best. His love for his children is obvious. Even with a busy work schedule, he finds time to make each child feel special. I love the tree house!

This looks like an awesome tree house for kids and adults alike!! This is a busy Dad who loves his family and will take the time to do things with his wonderful children. Best wishes to win the contest.

This dad is the father to 3 great children! No one has mentioned that one of these children has autism. He is such a dedicated dad. He deals with the daily struggles of having a special needs child and still finds time to build a tree house. Amazing!

I also know this Dad and he is the best! His kids and family come before anything else. He is definitely a devoted Dad and I wish him all the Luck in the world.

The tree house is only part of the fun in this back yard. There's also a zip-line to ride and enjoy that is the envy of the neighborhood kids. As a busy hands-on dad he definitely earns the Best Dad title, whether or not he wins the contest.

I know this Dad and he's been devoted to his kids since he started showing photos of the Sono grams and asking friends if we wanted to listen to a tape recording of the baby's heart beat before they were born. Good Luck Dad.

I love the tree house! It takes a very special dad to build such an amazing place for the kids and spending time with the kids makes him even greater! I think you all deserve the KFC prize so that you can have a big family picnic in the tree house!

What a wonderful tree house and what a wonderful family you must be. Your dad must love you very much and you must love him very much, too. Enjoy your special house and good luck!

I know your father and the people who say you have a great one are soooo right!!! Between work obligations, finishing a degree and life in general... he still makes time to build a tree with you!!! You are blessed in so many ways!!

What a wonderful dad you have!!! And, I bet you are wonderful children, too. It is so refreshing to see a family that does things together. This tree house is something that will always be remembered--unlike so many "toys" that are bought.

Zach, Katelyn, and Micah, We can tell your dad loves you a lot. Wow! What a tree house! It is also obvious that you love your dad alot. The Swiss Family Robinson family would be envious!
