Sandbox Ice

The other week my daughters were outside in the backyard playing when they suddenly come running to the back door.  In excited voices they tell me and my wife that we need to come out and see something.  So we grab our shoes and head outside.  They have a sandbox outside that had filled with water some time back.  The water then froze when we had a stretch of cold days.  This day was a warmer day and the ice had started to melt just enough for them to pull the ice out of the box.  Here's what they were excited to show us:

They got a kick out of these ice shapes, especially the top picture where a cup is still frozen into the ice.  Moral of the story:  Let your kids play and explore outside.  You never know what cool things they may find. :-)
