Every kid needs a fort.

Yes, those blanket forts inside your house are absolutely wonderful for a few hours but kids need a real fort.  A place where they can escape and play imaginary games and end up somewhere amazing and magical.DSC_0043 DSC_0045 Throughout the summer Jared and the little ladies built such a place. It took all summer to gather up the free wood and find pockets of time here and there to continue its progress. DSC_0050 DSC_0048 Construction came to a halt when a mommy robin decided that the new fort was a perfect place to begin her little robin family. DSC_0106 Eventually the walls were all up and the girls got to paint.  We agreed upon a color as close to blueberry as we could find and so named the little house, “Blueberry Cottage.” DSC_0456 So there she sits in our frozen tundra, smothered in snow and offering a perfect escape from the cold winter wind. I wonder what fun adventures our family will have in there this winter? unnamed-2 unnamed-3
