When kids have a jammie day at home, they use their imaginations to play and have fun. Sometimes, that involves playing a prank on their unsuspecting Dad. Today, with Mom’s help, these boys have an elaborate plan to get Dad as soon as he walks in the door. A pyramid of red Solo cups, stacked to about six feet tall! The slightest movement will unleash a cascade of falling plastic cups.

While the kids were upstairs, Dad opened the door, almost ruining the prank. He was EARLY! Mom stops him and asks him to go back outside while she calls the boys down to hide for his entrance. He laughs a bit but complies. Closing the door quietly, he waits outside while Mom gets the boys into their hiding spots. When Dad opens the door again, his look of surprise is spot on.
