Before our neighbor brought a ton of sand I picked up some from a friend who was done using her sandbox.
After the days of rain (and waiting for the cover and stakes to arrive in the mail) Nolan and I started filling the sandbox, small shovel by small shovel full until I could lift the garbage pails on my own to dump them out.

Then we got to playing. And for about 30 minutes both Emily and Nolan played quietly in the sandbox.
We gathered sand toys and trucks and filled the box with all sorts of fun!
This makes me very happy!
