This is not a toy.

Once the rain began on Sunday, Steven, the kids and I relocated ourselves inside. We had been busy doing "outdoor things" which is what we do the majority of the time, once warm weather arrives.





Being indoors with nothing to do, is a rarity. Steven and I both on the couch at the same time.....even more rare. We were enjoying it. We didn't even bother to turn on the tv.






Nope.






Our kids are entertaining enough. And luckily, they entertain themselves while they are entertaining us.





Miss L grabbed her camera and began taking pictures of her and Mr. B posing - in their tough guy stances - for the camera. And it was then that I had to grab mine.




Steven helped them get dressed in super hero garb. Originally they even had a pizza box mask on. I think it is safe to say they loved their (ahem) new outfits:



I think the plastic grocery sacks just scream, "YOU WANT A PIECE OF ME?"






I am sure you are thinking, "What kind of parent lets their children play with, or rather, wear a plastic grocery bag? Don't they know it is a suffocation hazard?"







Well, let me tell you....







It would be the same kind of parent that lets their children use it as a parachute:







And the same kind of parent that lets them have plastic sack races:
And of course, we let them use them for their intended purpose: sacking up groceries....

Going green is really over rated. In fact, I think that the adults that adheer to the "This is not a toy warning" are depriving their children of a whole lotta fun!

I totally agree. When ever I am asked "paper or plastic?" I try to imagine all the possibilities. Some parents are so narrow-minded, aren't they?

Looks like they had a ball!

Fun can be found in the simplest places, no?
