though we thought we'd have to wait until next week for sand, Grammy and Poppy were able to bring a ton and a half of NICE
sand for the box today. I'd have more pictures of the actual process, except that Andrew and I had been in his little pool when Mom and Wayne got here, so I was soaking wet. James had already told me that the camera batteries were low and to take them out of the Swiffer WetJet if I couldn't find some new ones, but in my rush, I couldn't remember what he told me to take the batteries from, so I raced upstairs (still dripping, remember) to get the camcorder, only to be told the memory card is not in the camera. "F---, F---, F---" is basically what came out of my mouth, in my fear that I'd miss the Big Dump, and I couldn't find my damn cellphone anywhere. So, this is what I was able to pop off before the camera shut itself down for good. Ugggh. Fortunately, Mom had her camera (which I didn't know until after my wild goose chase....grrrrrr) and we were able to document the event, but now I have to wait for her to email me the pictures. We took some tonight, however, as Andrew and I christened the box with all the beach toys and had a grand old time. A big "THANK YOU" to everyone involved in the project!
