Aaaaaargh!!!

WARNING!!!
Picture overload ahead

I know I have been a total slacker this past week on posting new stuff but I have a great excuse. Promise!!!

When I was in Pennsylvania last October Mike had a great idea and turned a huge closet into a fun fort for the boys. A pirate ship to be precise. I was super excited about this new fort and told Mike I would be happy to paint it and make it a little more "Pirate-y".

Well, I did finally finish painting it and it only took me 5 months! But I must say, "Yaaaaarrrrrrrrrr, she looks grrrreat!"

And the boys love it!

First we started with a huge closet that we didn't know what to do with...
Then this happened...
Yes, those are toys and other junk under the fort. I'm not THAT great! :)


We still have to put the trap door in so the boys can use this for sleepovers. Plus I need to take 10 minutes and clean up the paint that I dripped on the deck of the 'ship'. I was just in a hurry to get this post up so you didn't all think I was giving up after the blog war!

Okay, that looks awesome. I can already see capt. Jack (aka Walker) and his trusty sidekick Will turner (aka Porter) playing in their little quiet voices...Ai, ai Matey!
