Boxes of Fun

The kids found a box - they grabbed the cat, put him in the box, he jumped out...repeatedly. At one point someone (maybe it was Grammie) opened the patio door and Whitey made good his escape.

Not to let a good opportunity get away, they grabbed the baby and manhandled her into the box. She was not impressed.

In an effort to keep Elly from freaking out - and to join in the fun - Charlie and Max climbed into the box too.

Elly still wanted out - her new toy promised to be so much more fun than a dumb old cardboard box.

Max was the last to exit the box. He had more fun than Whitey, Elly and Charlie put together.

Maybe someday he'll get a real toy to play with :)

they've been playing with that box all weekend.
the last thing they did before going to bed last night was to seek out whitey and trap him in the box "so he could sleep"

Max looks so much older every time I see a picture of him!

poor elly, she must really be looking forward to being able to run away from those guys more effectively.

Hehe. That's cute. My cat LOVES boxes. I've often time seen where parents buy the most expensive toys but the only thing the child wants to play with is keys or pots and pans!

Your children are adorable!
