When we were at Grandma’s house for a week,
we wanted something simple to entertain the kids, preferably outside.
Grandma suggested making a tent for them,
I had noticed one along the road just a few days before,
so combining our ideas, the tent house came to life.
Mom has a 3 stranded wash line so they hung the sheets over the lines
and clothes pins worked great to hold it together.
They even used an extra sheet and added a porch.
We thought we were building it for all the kids,
but the two hippies kind of moved in and took over.
They hauled all kinds of paraphernalia from one house
or the other, and filled the tent!
The other kids stopped in to take tour of the place.
One tent dweller willingly hopped off her chair to open the door,
the other happily stayed right where she was.
Their vehicle was usually parked close by
so the walk was not a one strenuous when they left home.
After awhile they announced, “It’s time for you kids to leave now!”
“These guys are a little strange!” he thinks.
But they don’t mind being thought of as strange,
life is good.
Whew, back to relaxing now that the visitors have all gone home.
Eventually they ventured out to find some food.
This picture sums up their relationship quite well.
One does something strange, while the other watches with interest.
Unknown to them, when the hippies are away, the mice will play.
While they were out getting food and playing some games,
two visitors sneaked in and took over the tent house.
These two are the best of friends
and quite enjoy their time together
when we are at Grandma’s house.
Build your gang a tent house,
it creates hours of fun.
