Friday Fun with the Grands

Today hubby and I went out to our girls home so that hubby could continue to work on the kids fort and Hunter could have more play time with Lily.
What started out as a small clubhouse or cabin looking structure, quickly evolved into a fort.  Our son-in-law enlisted hubby's help and this structure will last for many, many years. 
The kids climbing structure; you can't see it but to the left they even have a zipline. 
If the sky wasn't so hazy due to the fire up north, you could see the Rockies.
Boys will be boys.
Momma Carrie with her youngest, Miss A.  She is such a love!
Oldest son, age 11, doing what boys do best.
If you click on this photo, you can see Miss A airborn.  Such a wonderful environment for kids.
Hunter and Lily playing tag.  Each day Hunter gets more playful.  It is so good because we want to be able to exchange pet sitting when one family needs to leave.
The whole gang plus Papa enjoying the view from up top.  Today my man built the supports for the roof and the trap door going up.  The kids are already envisioning spending summer nights sleeping up there. 
So, this is just a little of the blessings from my day today.  I did get new photos of our baby hatchlings and also of a Killdeer with four eggs.  I'll share them next week.  Enjoy your weekend!
Joy to you~Noreen & Hunter


  1. Wow, that is one cool fort!! Funny how men can get a bit carried away with using power tools :) Lucky grands!!
    Last summer I asked my hubby to build a simple dog house for the girlz,'s like a palace, each dog has their own private area that can be made into 2 rooms in the winter. A covered porch, insulated, shingled, and painted the same color to match our house. It weighs about 400lbs. It's perfect!!
    Have a great weekend

  2. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all! Have a great weekend!

    Your friends,

    Murphy & Stanley

  3. Your post and pictures have once again given me a much, much needed lift!! THANKS FOR THAT!! Enjoy your weekend and kiss your little boy Hunter for me, I am in love with that sweet face!!!

  4. What a fun day- I LOVE the fort! How neat that kids have all those things to use as KIDS...and they're not sitting in front of the TV or a video game out there. It sounds like a ideal place for kids to hang out! Hope you have a great weekend- xo Diana

  5. Very cool fort. And what looks like a wonderful Friday.

  6. Wow, what a cool fort!!

    Looks like Hunter had a great time, too!

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  7. Good morning! WOW!! I love how this all looks. What an incredible area for the kids. A cool fort, an awesome play set, AND a trampoline! Soo wonderful. Such a nice big area to run and enjoy life. They are truly blessed. Not a lot of young families have that much room out here in California for kids to play...honestly, how wonderful that would be. Hope you have a good week-end. Looking forward to seeing that finished fort!

  8. Those little kids have plenty of fun with the fort and trampoline - we loved the photos. Enjoy your weekend - woofs and licks from Magic xx

  9. I think having grandchildren make life so complete! Great post!


  10. I somehow missed this post! My goodness, what a wonderful place for your grandkids to grow up!! The fort is magnificent and I love the firepit area!! Lots of play area for Hunter and friends!! Just wonderful. So glad to hear that Hunter is getting along better each day! Thank you for sharing your day!
