By 8:30 this morning, we were all outside working on the sandbox. Correction: Grady and Grandpa were working on the sandbox; Grady Lee was "helping" by hammering random places and ensuring that everyone knew he was wearing his safety goggles; Micah ran around and played with Grandma; and I sat on a towel snapping pictures of the crazy fun.
Check out this 5x7 beauty... all 35 square feet of this sandy fun was built with love (and sweat) for two very excited little boys.
And, in typical Grandma-style, no sooner was the sand spread in the new sandbox, when she appeared bearing gifts: lots of new sand toys!
So, for the next two hours, my boys dug and built and crashed and buried anything and everything in their new big sandbox.
(Thanks Grandpa and Dad for all your big muscle work!)
