I just bought a new television for our family room. The boys were running around the house jumping and screaming out of excitement. I thought wow I did a good thing. As soon as I got it installed the boys grabbed the box and vanished. They were more excited about a big box than they were about a big tv. For the last few days the box has been a drive up ice cream shop, a fort, a slide, and a prison. I think that instead of buying expensive things for the house I will just buy big box every week and let the boys tear them apart.
First day fun climbing out was tough It is even fun for friends.
Even though the boys liked the box more I still like the tv. It fits very nicely above the fireplace. I just need to build a box for my components and hide the wires.
Just getting the tv up there was a chore, it is 240 pounds.
