Wordful Wednesday/Wordless Wednesday: Building forts

Over the weekend I pulled out the chair and a half to vacuum and Will quickly built a fort, his accommodations include plenty of pillows, a blanket, battery operated candles and of course some of his toys. It reminded me of the forts my brother and I use to build when we were kids, sometimes it is the simple things like pillow forts that bring sheer delight!

Wow! Your son has quite the fort building skills. My sis and I did that a lot as kids. My son is not too interested. Happy WW and take care.

I loved building forts! I used to sleep in a My Little Pony's Tent that connected to my canopy!

My girls built a fort just today on the bottom of the bunk bed. I remember making them as a kid too. Too cute! :)

My almost 3-year-old loves building forts with tables, blankets, and plenty of pillows. I don't blame her either. Those kind of forts look perfectly snug and cozy. :)
