Being a kid

Sometimes, you just have to be a kid. Amongst all of the adult things that we deal with on a day-to-day basis--be a kid. It is fun to giggle, to watch a silly movie, to wear pjs all day, or to build a fort.
Travis and I both had a three day weekend last weekend and we wanted to do something fun--something different. We planned on camping in our backyard. But, the rain on Friday put a damper on those plans. So, instead we he built a fort in our living room.
As I was falling asleep, I thought that in a few hours I would be nudging Travis to get in our bed with me. But, I also had a little inkling that wanted to be able to say that we slept in our living room fort all night. You know, on the hard ground...roughing it:)
We ended up sleeping the whole night in our fort and it was great! Not sure that I am going to ask Travis to set up another fort any time soon, but, I'm glad that we did it. I felt like I was a little girl have a sleep over with my best friend. I guess that is because I was having a sleep over with my best friend. Fancy that.

I hope that we continue to act like kids every once in a while. Even when we have our own kids, I want to build forts with them and have sweet kids taking up our fort. 

So, don't forget to have fun in this crazy, but beautiful, world. Build a fort or go camp in your backyard:)
