And a Fort is Born

So the weekend was just packed.  We did a lot of mundane stuff--groceries, laundry--and some fun stuff.
To start with we went to our cousins son's birthday party.  The kids got to run around and play and have fun.  Then we went home and set up the camper so we could get it ready to head to the mountains next weekend.  We even put up the add-a-room it came with that had never been used.  It turned out pretty cool.  we did redneck it a bit, but it works and will be nice when we are going somewhere we plan to be for a while.  It's not so good for a quick weekend trip though.  It's a bit of a pain to put up.

Sunday was nicer than Saturday--no rain.  We took the kids to the lumber store so we could get stuff to build a fort for the boys to play in.  Then we came home and made Turbo help to level the ground, set the cinder blocks for the base and help to build more of the fort--all while not telling him what it really was until it had walls.  Once we told him what it was he was so very excited.  It needs some more work, but we got it to the point of being mostly dried in.

I had a good weekend myself.  I got the Laundry shut up.  It's all done.  Except the towels.  The towels can hang in the dryer.  I'll fold them later.
I also got to sleep in until 8:30 on Sunday.  Something I usually can't do.  Hooray for a comfortable bed.  Oh, and the strawberry chocolate beer?  It tastes pretty good.  Kind of like strawberry wine with beer.  I like it and it is very potent.
So how was your weekend?
