because in the haynie family, sandcastles aren't a small thing.

They are serious business.
Today, we built an egyptian pyramid. about 3 feet tall and 3 feet wide or more.
feel free to be jealous.
It all started a couple years ago, when the children wanted to build a sandcastle. Soon, the children were shunned and it's the adults making the magnificent sandcastle, big enough to sit it.
Each year they get more amazing and more elaborate. Once, we had a paved roadway all the way to our castle and into our moat. This year, things are getting crazy serious. My brother brought all sorts of odd tools, that are used for building houses. We've even contemplated bringing a wheelbarrow or perhaps a fourwheeler with a claw attached to the back, but decided against those because frankly, we have no room.
At the end of each day, we get the pleasure in filling up the moat, then proceeded to jump the sand castle and the trample it, so other children don't get to feel that joy when we made it.
Tomorrow, we're thinking about an alligator, or some sort of creature.
Don't fret, pictures will be posted once I get home.
