**Happy Feel Good Friday!!! What will you write about today?**
A couple weeks ago I noticed a purple box hanging from a tree limb in our neighborhood park.
Nobody knew what it was.
It bothered me. I wanted to know what was in this mysterious box.
This week, I showed it to Emily. It bothered her too.
We walked to the park 3 times to look and to wonder.
We even brought binoculars to see what the mysterious paper said, hanging inside this mysterious box.
This family loves a good mystery.
One afternoon while Sarah was sleeping, we sat outside wondering what it could be and how could we get at it.
Could it be a treasure map?
Or possibly money?
Maybe it was a key to something?
Emily wondered if Ninjas would come out at us when we attempted to get the box down.
Tyler’s best guess was that it was a memorial to somebody who died and if we disturbed it, ghosts would haunt us forever.
Like that hasn’t happened already…
Emily tied all of her jump ropes together to make a lasso to throw up to the box to try and pull it down. She practiced her lasso-ing skills in the driveway.
I googled the DNR and our County website just to make sure it wasn’t something official.
Tyler even hurried home in case it was indeed a treasure map and we had more places to go.
We got out our roof rake with all of the extensions and put it into the car.
It was unanimous that, just in case we needed to get away from the ninjas quick, we would need our car.
Carefully, we hooked up the rake and started to try to get the box down.
After some time, we got saw a young man walking his dog.
I asked him if he knew what the contraption was and he actually knew. It would have been helpful if the tree had been labeled somewhere… anywhere.
Deflated we all slumped home.
Our adventure was over.
Emily was the most disappointed and I asked her this,
“Would you like to have a family who would not care about the box and just poo-poo it, or would you rather have a family like ours who spent the entire day dreaming of treasures and ninjas?”
What do you think she said?
This week, it makes me feel so good that our family has such an imagination and a huge adventurous spirit.
Memories like these don’t happen every day.
