    There we were... The Pine. Knowone watched us play. We Dissapointed peope constantly. We offended people religiously. We ate all your food without asking. We woke you up early. We kept u up late. We overstayed our welcome. So many stories. So much fun. We loved to play. We loved our songs. We were all we needed. I can't Remember a time that we weren't Laughing. Everything was so simple back then. Four kids in a tree. The Pine was real. [4] (uploaded a new pic as the previous one got deleted)
