Wood Fort

While I was recovering from Wisdom Tooth Extraction Surgery :) – my dad was hard at work replacing steps on the side of our house that lead down to our backyard. The steps we had since moving in began to give us issues right away. They were old to begin with and in need of replacing. My dad is handy and replaced the steps in just a few days. We now have non-rotting steps that don’t crack when we step on them – much safer.

Here’s a photo of them. For picture sake :)


With the piles of old wood planks we had, I thought it be fun to use it to make the boys a fort. My husband is not very handy. He is the first to admit that. He can however use a hammer and nail. :) So with that we created the Wood Fort! Literally ;-)

The boys LOVE it. Its so cute and simple… but will give them hours of great imaginary play. The best part, it was free to make besides the cost of a few nails :) – and time.


It was placed right by the creek in our backyard. Hidden in the trees. Yet easy to get too.


Reed can even get to it if need be.


Wow his shirt was dirty… :-\

Taite being silly, pretending he is scared because he is so high.



Look towards our backyard from the fort
