The Bargain

Brandon made a bargain with Hyrum in the middle of March. The bargain was that if Hyrum cleaned his room, Brandon would help Hyrum make a fort. As you might guess, Hyrum was thrilled at the prospect and eagerly and quickly cleaned his room. True to his word, Brandon helped Hyrum make a fort. Brandon even put Hyrum's bed mattress in the fort so Hyrum could sleep in his magical abode. The fort stayed up for over a week and Hyrum was in heaven! He loved playing and sleeping in his fort. He was constantly wanting the babies to come and play in the fort with him. Needless to say, Brandon made Hyrum very happy.

Don't you just love little boys! So cute! Caleb likes to put our tent up in the living room every once in a while.

Such a cute idea! And I LOVE Hyrum's smile--he just looks so happy.

Hyrum does look so happy. Good job Brandon. Steve does that with the kids too. They think it's heaven!

For some reason forts are magical to kids! That looks like so much fun.

Looks like a lot of fun. Hey, I was wondering if you guys were going to Utah during the summer at all. We're going to go for almost all of July, and I was hoping you'd be there sometime. We missed you at Christmas cause it was so busy, but I want to see you and how big your kids are getting.

That is awesome!!! I LOVE that you put his mattress in and let him sleep in it over the weekend. You are going to be known as the "cool" parents for sure!
