Box City

Last night we slept in a box. There were almost 100 people that all slept at "box city". It was a fund raiser for Family Promise. Family Promise is an amazing opportunity that helps homeless families get back on their feet. It was a priviledge to be a part of it. Here are some pictures. The band was a hoot and invited people to sing! It was a blast!


Lizzie and Laura with the box they slept in - Nice Paint Job!

Sean lounging in our home away from home. Of course, Chica was there! When we came
home and sat down at our table we felt so priveledged that tonight we won't be
out there sleeping again. So sad that there are others without that option.

I LOVE my purple sleeping bag!
Sean singing "bye bye Miss American Pie"!!! shocking! and there was no
alcohol involved!

Lizzie and Laura singing "The Lion Sleeps Tonight"!!!
We love our box! Notice in the background - those people brought a table, chairs, and even a recliner from home!! They had it all cleaned up and loaded before we ever got up this morning! They were out of there before 7am...silly industrious morning people - I just don't get it!

Donut holes!!
Peek a boo, girls! This was their peep hole from inside their box!

I've never heard of this before. Good cause and good for kids to learn about this.

Interesting, and good to raise money for the homeless. And I have to notice that it's fun when it's voluntary, and not when it's the only option you have!
