Our sandpit....

The sandpit boat was put together 
by very eager parents last Thursday night.
 Daddy was up until late, very late!
 Friday morning we woke to rain, we had assembled it in the lounge room so
 it quickly became a book corner filled with soft pillows and our favorite pirate books.


Sunday it was still raining....daddy decided to move it under the carport and paint it.
 (we needed the lounge room back)!



Monday afternoon daddy did a second coat and purchased the sand..... 
10.30pm after the second coat had dried....daddy was outside in the dark lining the base.
I was praying for sun.... we could not wait to move it into the back garden, set sail and build sandy forts......


6.30am the sandpit was filled, the sail was floating in a light breeze and he played......



Thank you daddy....you truly are so loving and kind x
