Last weekend T was away at the track. It was kind of rainy and the week had been busy, so Bella and I hung out at home. We read books, played with puzzles and watched some Dr. Suess stories I picked up at the library. The only time we left the house was on Saturday for some ice cream.
By Sunday afternoon, we were both ready to be outside. The sun was finally starting to shine, but everything was still wet. I decided to turn our deck into a beach. We laid out a blanket and I filled a tub with sand. Bella got out her garden tools and asked for her hat. She spent hours shoveling and digging.
We were planning on building a sand table like Sarah’s, but whenever I try and put it up higher, Bella tells me she wants it on the floor. I like that it’s portable and easy to put away. It’s been rainy this week, so having it out on our deck has worked great. (I love my covered deck!) I’m not sure if we’ll make the table or not. In the meantime, she’s having lots of fun.
