Punishment, Colonial Style!

We took the kids to a colonial-themed town. I was sure the authenticity of it all would make them appreciate what they have now. Instead, they were convinced that this way of living was unbeatable. Their excitement escalated when we put them all in stocks and one replied "Cool! can we have one of these in our house for our time-outs!"

Definitely, children. We'll even put the stocks in our front yard, give the neighbors something to talk about while we're at it.

PS - By chance, did Richard wear his Coober Petey on this adventure? The man in the second pictue...He looks very jealous. Like he just lost a lame hat showdown.

those twins in the stocks are so stinkin' funny!

I think you should put it right out there with the treehouse and zip line, why not?

Jane said...

That is THE funniest thing I have ever seen and heard. The picture of the twins is priceless. I am SO sure!

Susan said...

What kind of time-outs do your kids have now to think that this would be an improvement?

Too funny!

This looks like it was a totally fun day!! We may have to invest in some stocks. :) They look very restraining!! Restraining is good, right??
