Audrey is one lucky little girl. This past weekend, it was decided and agreed upon that Audrey should have a few elements of a playground at her disposal, so Gramps and Pappy assembled with Daddy and set to work on phase one: the swing set. They were actually able to crank out a really nice swing set frame out of cedar in an afternoon, and attach the boat swing that Audrey got for her birthday from Grammy and Gramps.

The unoccupied finished product
While the guys assembled the swing set, Grammy, Mimmy, and I went to Costco where we stumbled on the last of the pre-made sandboxes. Everyone pitched in, and the following day Daddy had a new project...
Naturally, it's the windiest and chilliest day of the weekend when assembly begins
The directions claimed this was a 2 person job, but Kyle did it all on his own
Despite the terrible directions, a shape takes form...
The next day, Audrey checks it out, heading straight for the shovels
Next, a beeline for dirt (we haven't filled the sandbox yet)
Getting a closer look
Audrey figures out the edges are the perfect hight for sittin' ("Aaaaaah")
She sits on every side
Digging out the other sand toys
Audrey's sandbox and swing set turned out great, and all are just the right size... what a lucky girl she is! Now, bring on the nice weather!
