When the circle outline was formed it was time to collect a trailer load of new sand…..something the girls loved helping with as you can see…..
Before putting the sand in, His Patient Self laid down some weed mat…rolling out and tucking into gaps as he went….then it was time for the first wheelbarrow load of sand…so exciting, I have been wanting this sandpit design to come to fruition for quite a while now!
Ruby was more than happy to help stamp the new sand down…
Lucky Daddy had lots of help with this project…at times I know he was overjoyed…..especially when muddy boots connected with the clean sand and weed mat was pulled up behind him as it was going down! Got to love the patience of that man!
In spite of the frustrations I think it was such a lovely activity for the toddler twosome to be involved in from the start….watching how it was built and came together….seeing the work involved and bonding with Daddy over rocks and dirt and digging!
And although it still needs at least a few more trailer loads of sand to fill it….I think it is coming together nicely….just how I envisioned it many months ago. What do you think?
Now I can start on my dry creek bed of small rocks which will lead to the sandpit….so many ideas….so little time!
What’s the one thing you would love to see in your backyard if you could have it tomorrow? I’m not sure I could narrow it down to one thing!
