Swimming pool to Sandbox!

Daddy made a SANDBOX for the girls and they LOVE IT!

Since we are renting we didnt want to make a permanet sandbox, so we decided to make one out of a swimming pool. We got the swimming pool at walmart for $15. Since we live in the desert and have sand in the feild just across the road Daddy loaded up the pool in back of the truck and took it over there and filled it up half way. We had to tie a roap around the back of it and pull it out of the truck because of the weght! We drilled holes in the bottom so water can drain if it gets in there. We also cover it each night with a tarp to protect it from the neighborhood cats.

The girls are in HEAVEN and spend hours out there each day playing!



Dont ya love what Doodle chose to wear that day- a striped blue and white shirt with a green skirt, ah what the heck we werent going anywhere that day anyway!

  4. We did this very thing with a big storage container a few months ago. It's great fun! I just leave it right by our door and then yes, cover it at night to keep the cats out :)
