I always thought a sandbox would be fun for the boys but never considered it as a necessity. Well, it's gotten to that point.
We NEED a sandbox.
Our clever, mischevious little boys alway find a way to tear apart something in the backyard to find dirt to play in. They learned that all they had to do was move some rocks, or all of the rocks, to find the dirt hiding underneath.
Now Simon is intrugued with mud and it has been no easy task to keep the water off in the backyard for whole day so his mud puddle can dry. And just when I think Simon understands the "Don't turn the hose on" rule I find this:
Yep, he's sitting in a mud puddle, happy as a clam.
Big brother was just trying to make some mud for he and his little brother to play in.
Ryan is getting more than his fair share of baths lately.
Once we get that sandbox finished I'm hoping that I won't find anymore mud covered boys in my backyard. And maybe I'll be able to get my rock beds and grass looking like normal again.
