Seen from this perspective, the sandbox doesn't look like much, does it? But she's obviously engrossed in her activity.
The sandbox is a much more interesting place when you get down to a kid's point of view.
I think these guys are ticked off at their HOA. No stock tanks allowed in the front yard? So unreasonable.
Yes, we do buy some standard sand/beach toys for the kids. But recyclables from the laundry room also make great scoops, cups and buckets. Or dinosaur stock tanks swimming pools.
And items from the kitchen department of the thrift store can be inexpensive, durable, and more interesting than a typical plastic shovel and pail. This is maybe a version of the Hollywood Bowl? The seating is a bit primitive, but what do you expect when you go to hear a literal ROCK band?
And nothing makes a better roof for Pikachu's beach house than a scrap of wood trim. Obviously Pikachu is still working on his landscaping. And maybe a kitchen remodel.
So, just a friendly reminder: It's always a good idea to take a closer look.
