Castles in the Sand

Monkey and Bear playing in the sand.

Creating our mountain, and making the lava flow down the middle. :)

Monkey and Bear standing next to our creation. It's hard to make something very intricate or detailed with a 3 and 6 year old. :)

One of the workers there made this dragon. It was pretty cool.

Then I tried to take one more picture of the whole court where we all made our own sand "castles". Just before they were going to knock everything down right away, so they could start the volley ball tournament. So while we were sweating and getting all dirty and sticky from making our sand castle...I was thinking about a song that talks about that. Here's a link to a You Tube video of the song I was thinking about from the Booth Brothers. And yes it's from a Gaither DVD.....I know. :)

Here's the lyrics.

Castles in The sand
Like a child by the seashore
Building castles in the sand
Foolish dreams I have dreamed
Day by day
Leaving God out completely
Till the day my castles grand
Fell apart in the tide and swept away
In each life storms will gather
Rains descend and wild winds blow
Wise the man who in God
Is anchored fast
Are you then like that wise man
Are you anchored do you know
You are safe till the storms of life are past
Castles built upon the sand
Though they seem to be so grand
Will surely melt away
For in life’s raging storm they cannot stand
In the Rock of the Ages
All my hopes are built today
And in the Rock they will never pass away
And in the Rock they will never pass away.
