adam and I built this sandbox
This is the sandbox. As in the one that sat in the box for a year because I was worried I would screw up putting it together. By waiting an extra year, I ensured Adam could guide me through the process. It was easy except the factory in Germany (because only in Germany can you find the world famous rain-resistant Bavarian wood?) forgot to pre-drill some of the really important holes for the hardware, no doubt on purpose. So I had to haul out the heavy equipment. Which means there was bitching and moaning about the stupid 30 foot extension cord that always gets knotted and tied up. Anyway, Adam loves the sandbox. I’m going to do a little stonework all the way around it with some of the flat, textured river rock I’ve been collecting over the years from rivers in the Cascades.
