A Fort

The other day it was very stormy out. Now granted living in the Northwest rain really isn't a unique experience. However, I remember growing up I loved to pretend my bed was a boat and that everything I wanted to keep needed to get on the bed with me. My brother, he loved to build forts at Grandma's house... I'm sure I enjoyed them too. So that's what we did on this particularly stormy late morning. We built a fort.

Ace absolutely had a blast! He ran in and out and brought Buzz and Woody in and out with him. Then he wanted his momma in. Then he was all done with momma being in there. Then he wanted to eat cheese... yes it was a specific request for cheese. Hmm ok. So I went and got him some cheese and milk and myself some coffee and we had ourselves a picnic in the fort.

After a while of running around in and out of the fort it was time for nap time. After all that running around he was pretty well ready for it and so he laid down and got his mama milk and laid down for a nap inside his fort.

I loved building forts and hiding out inside with books and a flashlight when I was young (sigh). Maybe adults should do this more often!!

this brings back great memories of when i was a kid! our living room couch was a boat and then a spaceship, and we'd build forts out of chairs. i can't wait until my son is old enough for us to do this!!!
