Who needs Disneyland when you've got a box

Last summer the kids got a swing set that we set up in the backyard. As much as they love it I think they  love the boxes that it came in just as much, if not more.

On rainy days or super hot days we would set them up in the living room and they could play house. Soon that got old.

Next we built them a super fort in the playroom. They talked us into letting them sleep in there but it was too exciting and cool and they couldn't go to sleep and got sent to their beds....

...then Rick took one of the boxes to a whole new level. Last weekend he took the kids outside so I could try to get the house clean (which will never fully happen) and this is the activity he came up with.
What could be more epic than a huge fort?......The Spinning Vortex of Doom!!!

Really, who needs Disneyland when they've got a huge box and a super dad?

It looked so fun I wanted to have a ride too but I could just see the bottom of the box rip open mid swing and me flying out into the road. I guess I will just have to live this one through the kids :)

2 posts in one month! I LOVE IT! Ok, this seriously made me laugh out loud! The laughter coming from inside of the box was the best part! :) P.S. I give you an A+ for creativity!
