Fort Butler

About a week before Thanksgiving our neighbor knocked on the front door. "Hey, I have something I want to give to your boys." Not having a clue what it was he wanted to give to my boys I just replied with an, "Okay!" Art, our neighbor says, "It is kinda big. I am going to need some help getting it over here." My reply, "Oh, let me get Scott." A few minutes later Scott and Art the neighbor come across the street with the playhouse of my little girl dreams. Art actually built it for the boys. Of course my boys don't call it a playhouse. It is usually a fort or a shed. However, recently they have gotten creative. Nash will drive his car to the window and Atley will pass him a pretend Happy Meal. I assume it might be a sign that we eat too much fast food when my children want to play McDonald's in their playhouse. Anyway, the boys love their fort and we feel very fortunate to have such a good neighbor. Thanks Art!

I love it. Do you think that Art will build us one too? Then maybe Art and Scott can just bring it over.
You know the plastic food you can get the kids to play house with or what ever? Well my kids have the plastic McDonalds food...fries, burger, milkshake, apple pie, the works. Godda love McDonalds.

this is SO awesome. i'm jealous. instead of actual forts or playhouses when i was a kid, we'd just position boxes in the freezing cold basement and cover them with blankets... old school. and the mcdonald's thing made me laugh. so rad. :) (yes, i just said "rad")
