hideaway


it was a muggy day and brinley finally got over a fever so we were determined to get out of the house. i have a great love creating new ways to make memories, and this very day was one of the most beautiful days i have had with my boys. they were on an adventure and a few little rain drops were not going to 
get in the way of their whimsical fantasy. little boys have a funny way of making a great escape from reality. our little make-shift teepee soon became the home of many new characters. there were so many beautiful moments shared between the  boys and i was lucky enough to be the one allowed in on them. rowan is just a sweet brother, he is always assisting and including brinley. it makes me so proud that we are raising such a loving, giving child. brinley is not quite into story telling and make-believe like rowan (give him time he is only 2), but he has his own way of making us laugh and adding a great joy to those around him. i will never forget how this fun little world that we created was. it became the catalyst for a new romance i have discovered in motherhood!
so here is to raising boys who dream big, shoot for the moon, and have imaginations that reach 
great heights -- may they never lose their ability to create!!

Eva, thank you! I just made it with 4 small wooden poles that are tied together at the top. Then all I did was drape a queen size duvet cover that I already had over them, I didn't make it fussy the top is just hanging over and the bottom is loosely tied! Give it a try, it makes for a great place to nap :)
