Super Duper Secret Surprise

While Jaden and I were still in MN we heard that daddy was back at home after his fishing trip working on a super duper secret surprise. We were SO curious.

When we finally got home we couldn't believe how much work he did!

Jaden had a new GIANT sandbox!

Daddy laid out the boards and varnished them to protect from the weather.

Digging the hole.

It was a BIG hole!

Daddy was behind on homework so he studied Greek while digging!

Assemble the box
Ready to set in the ground
Then he sifted the dirt he already moved once through the metal basket to help fill the GIANT sandbox! Our dirt is basically sand anyway. He just had to get weeds, roots, and rocks out.

It doesn't look level, but it is. It's our ground that's crooked!
There was still some filling and sifting to do after we got home so Jaden and I worked on the sandbox a few hours a day each day that next week.

We'll probably buy some more play sand to fill it up even more sure is fun!

I think he likes it!

  1. Congratulations Stephen on being a multi-tasker! Studying Greek and digging a hole - which was the most strenuous task? This is the best sand box I've ever seen. I can't wait to get to play with Jaden in it.
