The sandpit is next to the cubby house which was unexpectedly here when we moved in seven months ago. It was one of the exclusions on the house contract.
It's like a miniature of the Sow's Ear. The previous owner had made it with his sons from remnants of other houses they had owned. Very sentimental, isn't it?

But it was too hard to move so they left it behind. Now we have two houses.
Anyway back to the sand, we only have one wheelbarrow and one shovel. But we did have an extra pair of hands because Number 1 son had a school friend over for a play date.
Three little slaves with buckets and a big slave with a wheel barrow. Yes!

Son for hire's Dad made us the sandpit cover.
Heavy duty shade sail cloth with chain sewn around the edges to give it weight.
They did a good job.
