The "Box"

Now that we're actually home and the weather is finally summer-like, it's been so fun to be outside with Lucy most of the time. On twenty acres, there's pretty much always somewhere new to walk and something new to investigate. But who needs to go far when you have the world's BIGGEST sandbox!?!
Daddy built Lucy a HUGE (like 25ft. x 40ft.) sandbox -- or, as Lucy calls it "BOX!?" ... I'm telling you, this thing is about a quarter of the size of my arena! And he conveniently built it right outside of the arena so that the kids (Lucy, Mickey's kids, and all of her riding student's siblings, etc.) have something to do while we ride. It has been a really awesome addition!
When he got this year's annual sand load for the arena, he just got an extra load for the sandbox, so it's fine, soft beach sand ... even I like to just lay in it, close my eyes, and pretend that I'm at the beach! Ha! :)~
Lucy has been spending hours and hours in the "BOX!?" (that's how she says it ... like she's asking "Can we please go in the sandbox NOW???").
Here are some pictures from a week or so ago...

Auntie Sherry and Cam were hanging out this day, too ... while Mickey rides in the background. Fun times on Twin Rakes Lane ... :-)
