Recreating Childhood Memories

Friday night my boys made this highly complex fort in my living room – complete with using every blanket, comforter and quilt they could put their hands on and all the chairs and stools from the kitchen and dining room. Shame on me, I have no pictures of it! Why? Because I was right there in the middle of creating it and didn’t have time to stop and take pictures, of course 🙂

An entire night with virtually no arguing between the boys, lots of laughter and memories I know I’ll treasure for years to come.

Childhood Reflections on the Fun We Had

The fun we had brought back memories of my childhood and the fun times I remembered most:

~ Fashion shows with make up and high heels that were way too big for us with my mom, aunts and girl cousins…now that I think of it, we still do this on a pretty regular basis!

~ Talent shows at my grandmother’s house on Friday nights followed by wrestling matches

~ Red Light, Green Light; Mother May I?, Simon Says, and Hop Scotch …. oh the memories 🙂

~ Saturday dinners with my mom and sisters at S&S Cafeteria or Piccadilly’s.  My sisters and I, to this day, get excited if we find a cafeteria and can eat together.

What fun family memories do you have of your childhood? Have you continued them with your family?

Exactly Bonnie! I love when my kids unplug and have some good "old fashioned" fun!

Enjoyed watch my children build forts and now the grandchildren. They can be quite the creative little souls. Fun doesn't always require batteries.

We used to build forts in my mom's living room and both of my kids built them in mine. Fort building must be embedded in every child's genes. :)

How fun :) My oldest son loved visiting his great-grandfather in the country and collecting eggs and chasing chickens! I'm so thankful he was able to spend time with him. Thanks for stopping by.
