After my post yesterday, my brother e-mailed me some pictures of the sandbox he built so I could share them.
And if you take a look, you'll see why I wanted to!
Presenting...the coolest sandbox ever.
Complete with a hefty metal cover (no cats leave surprises in this sandbox!),
a pulley system that locks the cover up or down,
a gigantic play area,
and an array of authentic, vintage Tonka trucks and diggers.
Pretty cool, right?!
I love that all of the little cousins (there are 8 on my side) can play together with ample room to dig.
I love that it's deep enough that the sand doesn't end up scattered everywhere but in the sandbox.
I love that it's built into the ground instead of above it.
And while I'm sure my boys subconsciously appreciate all of those things as well,
they simply love the fact that they can dig and play to their hearts' content with their cousins!
