Once we got outside, the hat lasted a bit, but it was rather quickly cast aside (no surprise there), along with her shoes, which she refused to put back on (I guess the day was just too nice to be bothered with shoes). Oh well, I guess a sandbox is more fun without shoes anyway! Did you have a sandbox when you were a kid? I did. I spent hours there. What kid doesn't like sand? Sierra, it seems, is no exception. While she didn't spend hours there, a couple of bowls and a spoon did capture her attention for fairly long amount of time, relative to how long her attention usually stays focused on one thing. Just look at that focus and intensity. Can't even be bothered to look up at me.
