In-the-Garden ~ Porch Fort

Unless you live in the tropics, the Southern Hemisphere, or SoCal, it's quite challenging to get outside this time of year.  We have ten days of constant rain in the forecast & frankly, I don't like getting cold & wet.  Not to mention all the extra laundry that is generated from playing outside when it's soggy.  Bleh.

But...  Fresh air detoxifies, especially when you're cooped up in a house who's windows haven't been opened in a while.

A favorite childhood memory of mine is building forts on our little duplex's covered front porch in the rain.  I'm talking little front porch.  Just big enough for my mom to stick our kiddy table out on.  We'd cover it with blankets inside & out & eat our snacks in it.  Funnest.  Thing.  Ever.  I still fondly remember it, decades later.  Try it today.  Even if it's not raining.  Making memories usually requires extra effort on our part, but even writing this reminds me how important it is to carve out some time in my days & leave a happy taste of childhood in my little one's mouths as they grow up.
