No Vacancy.

I am always fascinated by the creative games my boys come up with completely on their own.

On Tuesday my little guy spent the day turning our entire home into a hotel.

Bedrooms were all numbered.

Check in this way. His makeshift lobby was downstairs.  He set up a desk with a cash register and signed us all in when we arrived.  Sadly, this was taken down before I had a chance to take a picture.

He wore a bellhop hat all day, showed us to our rooms, and waited on us when we ate in the hotel restaurant (a.k.a. the kitchen table).

We all enjoyed watching him play and were a little sad when the hotel closed.  Can't wait to see what he comes up with next.  In the meantime, I don't have the heart to take down the numbers.  So until further notice, you'll find me residing in room 98.


  1. Wow! You guys have 205 rooms in your house? You must live in a mansion! hahaha.
    Too freakin' cute.
    I can just imagine the little fart in his bellhop hat.

  2. Oh, this is precious! When I was little my brother and I made the attic into "Blue Sky Restaurant." We spent hours making paper hats and paper napkins..of course we never made or pretended to make any actual food. Just hundreds and hundreds of hats and napkins, hahah...

  3. How fun, when I was a kid my brothers and I turned our room into a giant spider web. Love your blog!

  4. Oh my gosh! Hotel was one of my all time favorite games as a kid. We'd make"themed" hotels, like the jungle hotel were we'd bring all of the house plants we could find into one room. I'm so glad your boys are carrying on the tradition!
