A New Sandbox!

We had a busy, fun weekend at our house! Our little boy got a sandbox! While daddy went to get the sand, I took this little guy to get some new sandbox toys, and there was this cute little lawn mower for only $6!

We got home before daddy & the sand, and he loved pushing the lawn mower all over the yard while we waited.

Now he's trying to figure out how to carry the sandbox toys and push the lawn mower at the same time.

... still waiting for the sand.

When daddy finally got home with the sand, he had lots of fun helping move it to the sandbox!

The new sandbox, full of sand, complete with toys and one happy little boy!

We're buying the house that my husband's grandmother lived in for most of her married life. There has always been a "fish pond" in the yard, but it's been full of dirt and pieces of concrete. Before my husband's father was born, his grandmother had a two-year old that drowned in the ditch in the front of the yard, and after that happened, she filled in the fish pond. So, we decided to dig it out and fill it with sand. We spent lots of time last week digging, and we finally got sand on Saturday! It was nice and warm on Saturday, but it's been pretty cold ever since. My little boy doesn't care, though. We were out playing in the cold sandbox on Sunday and yesterday.
