So, as I mentioned in an earlier post the kids found a cement structure nearby Gracie and not only claimed it as their own but immediately started on improvements. These kids know how to arrive and settle in quickly...wonder where they get that??? (insert sheepish grin)
In no time they had scrounged up items from the beach (Mexican beaches aren't as clean as beaches in the US so they found pipes and boards and all the items you will see used in the pics...anything that isn't the kid's sand toys) and surrounding campsites to use for their house. They even found a stick frame held together by rusty wire. It took 3 kids to haul it to our campsite and then they wanted me to cover it with palm fronds just like our big palapa... which we spent the afternoon doing. Their ingenuity was so fun to watch.
Paul and I go on walks alone or with the dogs morning and evening. Sometimes we come across items the kids may want to use for their house and they love when we come back with a piece of metal grate, a spoon someone left behind, or a tote lid that gets turned into a table top! We love to encourage their creativity!
Without further ado....The Kid's House!
UPDATE: Before we left Pulmo we scouted a different spot on the same beach. We'll park there when we head back to Pulmo and see if we like it better. Paul and I also scouted a new playhouse nearby to that site as well...a cinder block frame to a small abandoned building. When we left Cabo Pulmo, the kids packed up all their own things (sand toys, etc) and put the playhouse items (grill, shelf, pipes, etc.) into the new playhouse. The kids are looking forward to seeing if their playhouse things are still there when we get back.
