The kids Fort

Well, Larry Denzil broke ground on the kids play fort friday evening.  He sunk in the posts for a busy day saturday.  I have all the step by step photos.  The kids were so excited.  They held the posts in the cement and Ruby was right there for the mixing.  Anyways, he finished the floors and put up the slide.  We just need to put up walls and a climbing wall.  Larry Denzil is going to use our rocks meant for a rock climbing wall that we have had for a number of years.  He hasn't

quite figured out how to put up the swingset.  I do not think the kids will care.  Underneath the fort will be a big sand pit.  I just hope this is complete in the next 2 weeks before the start of summer vacation.
I kept myself busy finishing baby Ava's blanket and cleaning out our storage shed.  Both big tasks that I have put off.  We also had a birthday to celebrate this weekend.  Ethan turned 4.  He had a transformer party with chocolate cup cakes.  He got a transformer bumblebee and a pop up play tent and ball pit.  I highly recommend this toy to anyone with children under the age of 5.  He and Ruby have spent hours crawling through the tunnels and throwing the balls all over my house.

Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend and got a lot accomplished.  Brysha, I also hope your little one had a wonderful birthday, as well as Heber out in Utah.  We love you all and hope you enjoy the posts.
