Lair Tuesday





Since my last post about the lair a few months ago, we've been going over every week on "Lair Tuesday" to hang out in our super cool spot. Pictures just don't do it justice, it sprawls. It has rooms, trails, swings, bridges and there is always planning for more. Well today was somewhat bittersweet as we went over for what may be the last Lair Tuesday for a long while. While other parts of the world are just now welcoming weather that makes you want to be outside, here we are starting to experience the weather Florida is famous for:hot, humid, mosquito-ey. And our lair is in prime mosquito territory. Amongst other things, today we finally baked and put our little clay guys out in their caves and nooks, which was my favorite part. (there were more, but my pictures were bad)
We may brave it out a few more times over summer as we all love it so much but today we enjoyed it with the last of the cool bug-free days.

Wow, your lair is awesome! I love the roots. What a fantastic hangout spot, it must be a great place both to draw and play in. Your clay people will live like kings & queens of the underworld :)

What a brilliant place to play...
I used to have something similar when I was a kid on the farm where I grew up, it was the inside of a massive sprawling bush that had a hollow centre in it - I would crawl underneath and play in there for hours.
I had windchimes and a time capsule in there. I loved it.

The clay people are wonderful - they look right at home!
