The Sand & Water Table

Thanks to Som for our new super fun play table! Ok- super fun for Trip & Ruby and semi-fun for Mom. I'm still warming up to the sand, but I guess it's worth seeing their happy, smiling, sand-filled faces. They really did LOVE it! Trip knew that he could drink water and shouldn't eat sand, but he was curious as to what the combination might taste like. He put a handful of wet sand into his mouth. Yum! The funny thing about a sand & water table is that within 10 minutes the sides look exactly the same with a bunch of sand sitting at the bottom of a pool of water. Ruby just wasn't catching on that 1 side was for sand and the other for water. She immediately went to work transferring the sand over to the water side. Oh well- it kept her thoroughly entertained for a good half hour (it would've been longer but we had to get out of the way so the bug man could spray). Thank you Day Family =)........ You can see from our bi-colored deck that we recently enlarged it to about twice it's previous size. I'm really enjoying it so far and can't wait for the weather to stay nice. It's been a swamp here most of the week.

Woa! That is one big bow! ........ and I forgot to mention- when we got outside to play Ruby said, "Mom, you need to take our picture." She's clued into the fact that if she's doing something for the first time, I'm going to be taking pictures. How observant.
