I love a boy playing in the dirt.

Egan got a sandbox with some of the money he got for his birthday, but we just recently got sand to go in it. I wasn't sure how he would respond to the sand since he is pretty sensitive to new textures. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves. Oh, and yet again I failed at "editing down" the number of pictures. I would apologize, but I happen to think I have one of the cutest kids around. On with the pictures...
I believe he was saying "That!" He says it and points at everything these days.

Not quite ready to dive in yet., he's still checking out the sand from a distance.

Getting a bit more comfortable by throwing some sand around.

What kind of mom would I be if I didn't catch a cheesy grin? This is really the only one he flashed for me. He was too busy playing. Notice the lack of eye contact in the other pictures. That wasn't for lack of trying!

Check out the sand flying everywhere!

It was ALL in his hair.

All over his pants, legs, hands arms and shirt.

He didn't care though, cause it was so fun to throw!

Ah, the sand falling all down his face, so fun and so sweet.

What wasn't so fun and sweet was the bath that followed. Getting all the sand out of his hair was quite the chore. In fact, the remains of the sand are still in the bottom of the bath tub waiting to be cleaned up.

  1. My kids (they are now 9 & 5) had that very same sandbox! Seeing those pics of your son in his brought back some sweet memories . . . they grow up too fast!
