The Great Wall of China

A few more memories from Alabama:

If we are around a beach, another tradition my family has is an excavation day in the sand. 

These are the great pyramids from two years ago.

This year the boys had their planning meeting and it resulted in this…

The Great Wall of China.

We started on a very foggy morning:

The Littles had their own mountain to work on so they didn’t destroy the big ones.
