Proof that they really just wanna play with the box

So the move went fine (thanks to all who asked!) and in fact, looking back the whole experience could have been much worse. I had started packing well in advance, and the movers I hired were amazingly superb. In fact, I felt a little guilty Friday morning drinking my coffee and eating my fruit while I played Scramble with Friends while the moving guys did all of the literal heavy lifting...until I saw the bill. Then I realized it was totally worth every freakin' penny.

But as I'd mentioned, my kids were going a little stir crazy last week. If you've ever read anything I've written here, though, you'll already know that my children are amazingly inventive and creative. So of course they had a little fun with the moving boxes.

Man I'm lucky to have them!

In case you didn't catch it, Will asked to be called
"Bowling Shoes" for a few days last week.
No idea why.

Ahh moving with kids is so much fun isn't it? Gah! I have pictures of my (then) 18month old "swimming" through the pile of discarded paper that held all our dishes. At least they keep us smiling though the stress!

I say just throw away all of their toys...


Can't believe how big they're getting!

The boxes are always the best part - space ship, cave, sail boat, castle... anything and everything. I love how wonderful little kids' imaginations are.

My kids still like to play pretend with boxes. Okay, after I may or may not have suggested it. Whatev. Can I come over?
