Our New Addition

The sandbox! As soon as the rain stops and the temperatures rise past 60, I'm sure it will be a source of endless entertainment. The boys have tried playing in it numerous times only to come back inside with very cold red fingers and wet pants. These pictures were from the day we brought the sand home, and it's been chilly ever since. You'll notice the tarps we use to cover the sand, protecting it from use as a litter box- one under the sand and one over it. The end of the covering tarp is nailed to the playset so we just pull it up like a blanket and put a board on one end to keep it down. So far, our tarp covering system has worked great! The sand for the box was funded by some leftover boys' birthday money from various relatives, so on their behalf, we thank you!
