Savannah's 3rd Birthday....Part 1

Today was lovely! Not only for me, but also for our little "soon to be" 3 year old ~ Savannah. Today we celebrated her 3rd birthday! We anticipated family coming for the celebration in the evening and she was so excited! But her celebration began this morning, when we "unveiled" daddy's project for the last couple of days. Here's a look at the process.

For a little girl, Savannah LOVES the dirt! Put a shovel, cup, spoon....anything that will her hand and she's looking a dirt pile! Knowing this, it wasn't hard for us to come up with a gift idea for her would definitely be a sandbox. Not just any sandbox, though.....a "daddy built" sandbox! Dolan was so excited to get started on the project and he made it beautiful (if a sandbox can be beautiful).

After finding a few "accessories" from the dollar store (love that place!), we fixed it all up and let her run out and play this morning!
She definitely likes it!
But first things first...

After all, sand is best felt between your toes!

She spent much of the day here.....

Savannah loves her new play space and we anticipate many hours will be spent here! (note....must buy more sunscreen!!) "Thank you, daddy, for my sandbox!" =)

..."birthday party" part 2 coming soon
~good night

Do you think Savannah will let Sarah and me play in the sandbox? It looks like so much fun.
