Gracie Pearl wanted a fort to play in, but what he built was a little more than a fort. I mean the forts I had as a kid consisted of a board nailed into a tree that I sat on to read. My husband's ideas are a bit more elaborate. We made Gracie stay inside all morning until it was done, and then we surprised her with the finished product.
Ally painted her a sign for out front.
She was pretty excited.
He basically built her a 4x8 cabin! It's all screened in to keep bugs out. We used some recycled stuff and the boards we removed from a fence we took down in our back yard.
Is he an awesome daddy, or what?
What a great place for overnight campouts and lots of amazing pretend adventures - and just a quiet place to get away and read. The other 2 kids are placing orders for their forts - and I'm thinkin' that with just a few modifications -he could build me something like this for a pretty sweet chicken coop. Daddy's gonna take a break and go back to work, though. We worked him pretty hard today!
