saturday night we, meaning i, came up with this crazy idea that we needed to build a fort in our living room, because apparently i'm still five. a "severe" thunderstorm was rolling in and it sounded so cozy and fun, because like i said, i'm still five. being the good sport he is, camden even agreed to run to the store to grab some much needed snacks for our little hideout. - and boy did he score! he got us: crackers and cheese, grapes and donuts, muffins and gelato, the really good stuff. we watched idiana jones and the temple of doom while we pigged on our gourmet feast. by the way, the lady in this idiana jones drives me nuts, something about her voice, i don't know. anyway, we put a blow up mattress right in the center of our fort and decided we would sleep on it since it was pilled high with blankets and pillows. kramer always gets a little unsure and nervous when his house starts changing on him like this but once he realized how cozy it was, he warmed up to it real quick. especially when he saw the smorgasbord of treats inside. doggies just can't resist these things. it was so nice, we might just leave it up and sleep here one more night, just because we're crazy like that.
also on a side note, i wanted to thank all of you lovely readers who suggested such wonderful things to do while we were in new york city. we ended up doing a lot of your suggestions and we needed all the help we could get so . . . thank you!!
