Box Play

August 6th, 2009 · 9 Comments

The day we got back from vacation there was a phone message that a small table and two chairs that we ordered for our kitchen was in and ready for pick-up.  I told my husband that I was saving the boxes.  I had my thirteen year old daughter and eleven year old son in mind when I said this.  It was good thinking on my part.  Comparing the vacation we had with the boxes, the boxes were much more fun!  My husband and I figure next year we’ll just get a bunch of boxes and skip the vacation!

    Hi Puna!
    I know! Can you imagine how many boxes you could buy spending 1/4 of what is spent on vacation?!

    Hi elk!
    They sure are!

    Too funny! Maybe when they’re done, you could send those boxes my way. My cats would have a blast in those!

    Hi Stephanie!
    Kids and pets! They’re not that much different in what they like to play with!

    lol! That is great that you had a chance to capture it. I don’t think my almost 16 year old would play again in a box. Buuuuuut, the 13 year old would, in a heart beat. So much fun!

    Hi mrs. e!
    I thought that was funny, too!

    Hi lmerie!
    My 16 year old wouldn’t have interest either!

    Cardboard boxes are the best. I laughed when I got to the slide pictures! Great fun :)
