The Sandpile

Sophia, Noah & Maggie just love the sandpile out behind the house. Here Maggie gets in on the digging action!

She wasn't eating the sand, just digging and rooting.

Noah & Sophia pretend to dig like Maggie.

Ooooh these bricks are heavy!

She's so strong!

"Here Noah!"

Noah loads them in his dump truck

I think he's exceeded the weight limit!

Sophia loves the shovel (notice the snazzy jewelry, she's not a total tomboy...)

Uses her foot to push just like big brother

Noah sends the dump truck over the hill - CRASH!

Sophia works to fill her dump truck

Maggie was getting after an ant on the sand pile, she would pounce on it!

"For you Mama!"

Maggie's 12 weeks now, and we can see how much she's grown in just a few weeks!

My gosh I missed a bunch of happenings over here! The kids look cute as ever and Maggie is adorable. The sandpit looks like fun and I wish we had one!

I think Sophia is such a cutie now! (Not that she wasn't when I got to see her) It's nice to see how much she's grown and how much fun she looks like she's having with her brother and puppy.

Your pictures are so good. The expression you captured on Noah's face when the dump truck went down the hill is GREAT!

Sophia is so cute - a well bangled construction worker. :) It is very impressive how she uses that shovel.

Love the pictures of Maggie too. She has grown so much, like you said. I love the picture of her with a snout full of sand.

Wow! Those two love to play in the dirt! I remember those days when mine were little and did those fun things! I miss those good times!

I have some sand in my eye. Anyone over there care gently caress my face and gaze into my eyes and find it?

These pics speak the words "You had me at hello"- so great. Love that pooch with the muzzle sand smudge, and who can beat your little one offering up a bouquet of tiny blooms? said...

I love your sandpit!! Do the cats use it though?
