From the Department of Awesome Grandparents comes these photos of an amazing tree house, perhaps better described as a tree mansion, that Steve and Jeri Wakefield had made for their grandsons, Lincoln and Sullivan Scott, outside their home in Dallas, Texas.
Designed by family friend and architect James Curvan, this spectacular 100 square foot playhouse, fully equipped with electricity and air conditioning, sports two sleeping lofts, two decks, a crow’s nest, climbing wall, rope ladder, suspension bridge, and even a zip line.
The Wakefields’ grandsons were in preschool when Curvan built the tree house. “Some kids have a hard time with ladders, so I created a staircase with four landings,” the architect says. “That way even little ones can feel secure and safe on their way to the top.”
But it gets better. Now that their grandchildren have grown up, the Wakefields invite neighbourhood kids to come play in the tree house mansion. They must be pretty popular on their block. We’re guessing that these are also the sort of awesome folks who give out full size candy bars for Halloween.

“A biker’s power and intimidating image can even the playing field for a little kid who has been hurt. If the man who hurt this little girl calls or drives by, or even if she is just scared, another nightmare, the bikers will ride over and stand guard all night.
If she is afraid to go to school, they will take her and watch until she’s safely inside.
And if she has to testify against her abuser in court, they will go, too, walking with her to the witness stand and taking over the first row of seats.”
During one such testimony, a little boy sat on the stand, testifying against his abusive father, who sat less than 10 feet away.
“Why didn’t you say anything before now?” Asked the prosecutor.
“I was scared.” The little boy replied, honestly.
“Why aren’t you scared now, what changed?” The prosecutor watched the little boy closely as he pointed to the front row of seats in the court room.
“Because my friends are scarier than he is.”
shit like this makes me have faith in humanity again.
