When they were little they would play inside of it by crawling and making it roll. As they got older they would walk on top of it and roll it around the yard. They have crawled through it as a tunnel on a homemade obstacle course and turned it up on end when playing hide and seek. The possibilities for play were limited only by their imaginations.
Yesterday, my youngest son Ferrell, took the time to clean that old section of culvert and brought it to the front yard for Rachel and Ellen to play with. It brought back so many memories to see them crawling through that "tunnel". I can honestly say that scrap piece of culvert has been the most loved play thing my children ever had.
