Though the weather is still warm here, Summer officially came to a close this week. The boys celebrated by soaking up some sand in their sandbox. Cooler weather probably won’t stop us from heading to the beach, or spending lots of time outside but I’m definitely looking forward to it. We’re in a severe draught, so some rain would be wonderful as well.

  1. LOVE these pictures! I remember having a sandbox when I was little, the only problem was the neighbor cats would poop in it… that’s so rude! and nasty, so needless to say I didn’t really ever get to play in it.

  2. We don’t live anywhere close to a beach, so I definitely want to make a sandbox for my little guy next summer. We took him to CA over the summer and he absolutely LOVED playing on the beach!

  3. I need to get my little one a sandbox. He loves playing in the sand after discovering it for the first time this summer. Great pictures!

  4. Random horror story from when I was young. My parents ALWAYS had a sandbox for us when we were children. I may have been a late bloomer and played in the sandbox until I was way too old to play in it, I’m sure people thought I was a weirdo. Regardless of that. The neighbourhood cat came over to me – and everyone including the owner was terrified of this tiny thing, which is now why to this day I’m still frigtened of them. He came over, too close for comfort if you ask me, so I stood up. That’s where out of nowhere the friggen lunatic cat launched his MOUTH onto my KNEE. I couldn’t wiggle or shake him off in the matter of seconds which felt like minutes, so I bent over and plucked his teeth out of my knee with a popsicle stick. That’s why I’m afraid. Every cat. Ninja skills.

    Sorry. I had to tell you.

  5. Your photos are gorgeous! I love the light in the first one. I’d just want to sit there with an iced coffee, screw the sand. :p

  6. I love the sand box. The covering over the box would be great in this tx heat! We like to try and get outside as much as we can to. we are also praying for some rain.
