Pinecone Fort
By Beth Beutler
  

1     My cousin and I enjoy vacations from school. He lives about an hour from me, and when school lets out, we usually spend a few nights at each other's homes. Sometimes, we do a project together.
 
2     One of our favorite projects is building forts. We've made forts out of all sorts of things. We've used chairs and blankets to make a tent city. We even slept in our tents! One time, we used several cardboard boxes and built a city of skyscrapers to the ceiling. My little dachshund liked that because he could crawl into the boxes and go to sleep. Another time we used pillows and cushions to make an indoor snow fort and then threw wadded paper "snowballs" at each other.
 
3     This time, my cousin had a different idea. "Let's make a fort outside."
 
4     "That sounds fine to me," I said. We had just gotten a fresh blanket of snow the night before. "Are we going to use snow?"
 
5     "No, pinecones."
