My Pappaw made this amazing sandbox for Jackson. He went all out to make it really special. Y'all, there are Texas stars under the overhang. There's also a really cool umbrella that my Memaw picked out. And a three-color paint job! It also came with wooden lids to keep the critters away. It is AWESOME! Jackson loves it! We have this random square of bricks in one corner of our yard and it turned out to be the perfect spot for the sandbox. It's also the furthest point from our back door, allowing the sand more time to fall off a certain little child before he enters the house. Amen?
My photography tonight was awful, but I want Pappaw to be able to see how much his great-grandson loves his new sandbox. What I am lacking a picture of is the moment when Jackson chucked a handful of sand into my hair. Curtis said, "Jackson, you just got sand in Mommy's hair. Do you know what you've done?" Now I know not to get too close on a clean hair day.
He's waited his whole life for this!
Getting his hands dirty.
Seeing if sand is good to jump in.
Look, Mom! A plane!
Seriously, so happy.

Thank you so much, Pappaw! We love it!
