~*The Stormwind Fortress*~

Hello Dear Friends! We are in the midst of a wonderful Spring Break here & the weather has been so delightful! It is really hard to stay indoors ~ which we really haven't been doing much of. I hope you are all enjoying the days too!

Today, Jamie came over to help with the clubhouse re~do. Trinity just L*O*V*E*S to hang out with his big brothers! (too bad Craig had to work!) The boys and I painted the inside of the ol' metal box to cover the graffiti from days~gone~by, 'lovebirds'. (I think it said Steve loves Tina or something along those lines... not what boys need in their fort!) After the painting was finished, I let them do~their~thing... and the transformation became ~*Stormwind Fortress*~ (the boys came up with this name).....hummm... maybe they need a sign? That might be something I can help them with.





The box sits next to a small wooded area on our property. The boys searched in the woods to find sticks & logs to complete the fort. Jamie also wrapped one up in some rope to hang from a nearby tree. This one is for whacking with their handmade swords!





I caught them battling each other too...



I think they both had a very good time. It was great fun to watch them & listen to all their creative 'knight & amour' battle talk. I imagine there will be lots of playful hours spent in this fortress!

Many warm smiles to you all...

  5. Isn't it wonderful when you have a child with older siblings, my youngest absolutely adores his older brothers and they adore him.
    Looks like yours had a wonderful time!

  9. I love watching my sons interact! It's a savoring moment when it happens. There's a decade between my sons so these moments are extremely special.
