SAND PEOPLE


Only a few minute’s drive from our house 
is a heap of sand so big that people come from 
hundreds of miles away to play there with dune buggies, 
four-wheelers and motorcycles.

Our family has been known to join in the insanity 
of careening over the dunes without any way of knowing 
if there’s a cliff or an oncoming vehicle over the next hill.

 This time we just played in the sand.
We pretended we went to Tatooine to look for 
womp rats, banthas and jawas.
  
Failing that, the youngsters decide to re-create...
the Great Pit of Carkoon to capture prey.

Keeping an eye out for Tusken Raiders, 
Young T works swiftly on the excavation.

Baby J helps.

Young T makes a hole big enough 

to hold Jabba the Hutt.

He fits!

They use The Force to put their victim under a spell.
He surrenders his wallet, his keys and his cell phone.

Quick!  Bury him before he regains his senses.

Wow.  How did that happen?

You kids come back with my car!

How cute, he's trying to dig himself out.

Baby J helps.

He's getting out...RUN!

Looks like fun, and like summer is still in full swing for you. Which is exactly as it should be, right up until the moment your teeth start chattering. I must say, I am impressed by your impressive Star Wars lexicon....

This looks like a fun way to spend an afternoon. Where are these dunes? They look huge.

See, I'm with TexWisGirl--I was a bit worried that someone would come over a hill on a 4 wheeler and plow into you.
On another subject--I really, really hate sand in my clothes and just seeing your sweet hubby buried made me all squirmy. :)
