Sand it is


We are currently in the process of putting
our landscaping together and we have been
debating about what to do in the play area
for a while now.
Wood chips, rubber,... sand!
I never thought I would see the day but
having kids changes you or at least it helps you remember
a little better what it is like to be a kid and understand
that shiny wood floors aren't that cool and a big
castle with a bridge and an underground tunnel system full
of water is a creation that you'll remember forever.....
You should see Adalynn's eyes light up when I tell her about the
things we used to build.
So I guess it's happy playtime for them and happy mopping for me.
(At least now I can do it with a smile on my face instead of disgust
because of all the dirt!)

Oh you are such a good mom! In my last house I had a little sand box for my kids and I sold it with the house because I hated it so bad - but it is true they love it!

Wow, a brave move but your kids will have a blast I'm sure. Now if only there was a way to keep the sand from sneaking into all those little creases and crevices (in the house and on the kids!).

Ooh, I wish I could see it all done - you'll have to take a lot of pictures when you finish. I guess we came and visited a few weeks too early!
