If you recall from this post I am participating in a challenge to play with my children uninterrupted for at least 15 minutes. Today's challenge:
Here's my prepost disclaimer: My pictures are absolutely horrific because we were having sooo much fun! The autofocus on my lens has been broken for months and they told me it would take weeks to fix it, I can't be without my camera that long so I opted to just manually focus everything. Well, the kids were moving so fast today, I couldn't focus fast enough! Sorry!!!
It took a few attempts to get the fort just right, Daddy wanted to make the fort perfect for his girls. It just wasn't working. (BTW this is the perfect challenge for Daddy to learn some new things about his girls)
Here is Lexi and Charlotte helping by putting blankets all over themselves, meanwhile, in the background Daddy is struggling with brooms trying to get a pole system set up for a tent-like fort (which failed)
Finally, Daddy gave up and asked me what I would do.
Bring in mattresses of course! So he placed the girls' mattress over the couch, it created a bridge between the two. Charlotte immediately ran underneath the mattress, Lexi ran back and forth across the very unstable top (remember, she's the daredevil)
Build a fort and he will come...
Shhhhh! You have to be very quiet so you can hear where he is
Or else he'll jump out from anywhere and pull you out of the fort! AHHHHHHH!!!
Guess what, it was really the Kissy Monster instead! All is good!
I can't wait to see what tomorrow's challenge will be and where it will take us. I hope you will join us!!
