Both boys loved to climb trees.
Flynn made his first ascent of the elderberry tree when he was about 2 months old.
It was not long after that Eric joined him when they discovered they could climb up the inside of the Leylandii hedge.
Flynn soon went on to greater heights...
but Eric preferred to try closer to home hoping for a flying snack to arrive.
The higher Flynn could get, the better he liked it.
Sometimes Eric would venture higher, but it usually ended with me having to rescue him.
It didn't stop him trying though.
Flynn was fearless and would walk out on the flimsiest looking branches,
Sometimes there was a queue to get back down.
