The fun to be found in a huge empty box

There's been some excitement in our house.
 We purchased a new dishwasher and
 although mama is super stoked about our new appliance,
 I have to say that the empty box that the dishwasher came in 
has been a the biggest source of excitement around here.


What kid doesn't love a huge empty box?
It's like a blank canvas.
I tossed it into the living room without saying a word
and within minutes,
Koen had crawled inside and was pretending to drive a bus.

The possibilities are endless
and it quickly transformed into a clubhouse.

I just love discovering the boys chillin' in it.
Flip it on it's side and it becomes a movie theatre.

Toss it back up, grab a blanket and jump inside, 
it quickly becomes a reading nook.

Our beloved box is losing it's shape because 
they both love to hop inside and 
punch and kick the walls like ninjas. 

It's the perfect place for a boy to safely flex his muscles. 

 Oh, how we love our beaten up box. 
We'll see how much longer it can survive the wild rumpus.
