Project 52: Forts and Stories

It has taken me way too long to get this posted and I always love to post our date nights because they elicit more comments than usual, thanks to the link-up with Simply Modern Mom. But, better late than never!

For our last date night, Darren and I built a fort. You know, sheets, blankets, couches. Well, Darren said he always used chairs. But we turned our sofa and love seat back to back and built quite a nice little fort. I don't remember it being that easy. Perhaps we didn't actually move furniture. I remember a lot of draping and using clothes pins and piles of books to hold up the ceiling.

We had a little cake (thanks, Mom) and ice cream in our fort, then read to each other from a book we started a little while back. We left the fort up so that Davis could play in it the next morning. Davis thought it was the coolest thing ever and so I had another mini-date with Davis and we had a snack and read books in the fort, too.

That is an awesome idea! It's fun getting to act like kids again. :) And I love the double bonus of leaving it up for the kids!
