This past Saturday was a sweatshirt-wearing, yard-cleaning, outside-during-daylight-hours kind-of day.
The perfect day to spruce up the pile of dirt the small crew uses as a pirate hide-out/house/ant farm.
We added a very rough "fireplace" and brought it to life with a $4 tea kettle from an antique shop.
And tucked "pantry shelves" into the back of a tree.
(They double as an outdoor nature museum display.)
They spent hours "cooking."
(And fetching water.)
Now to add fresh mulch (it's waiting in the driveway) and a "roof."
SO excited about spring weather. :)
