Every evening, the kids hole up in the bedroom.  Occasionally one darts out for an article of clothing from the other bedroom. I hear Aubrey giving orders. I hear laughter. Occasionally, I hear whispers when a head has to peek out of the door.
Then they open the door and call for me to come watch their show. The very first one was the "Itsy, Bitsy Spider" and the bunk bed ladder was the spout. The second through the eighth shows all involved dragons or knights.

When we told the kids that we were going to Montezuma's Castle, they were immediately intrigued.  You can probably imagine their anticipation.
No, no, not that kind of castle, I told them.  The kind Indians lived in. This one is built into the side of a cliff.

Brant was the first to ask, "Is that the castle, Mom?"

If they were disappointed, they did an admirable job of hiding it and enjoying themselves anyway.
