Got Dirt?

What is it about dirt that makes boys just gravitate to it?  We own a sandbox with nice play sand from Menards and lot of buckets and shovels but if this boy finds a patch of dirt he would much rather play in that.  We have mole issues and every once in awhile they will create mounds of dirt in the yard while they are tunneling.  Jadon loves to play in these. 
I watch him amazed.  He does not even need a shovel.  Nope.  Why waste time going to get a shovel when your hands work perfectly fine?  Ugh.......
It does not take long before the other boy in the yard becomes curious about what Jadon is up to.  As soon as he realizes Jadon has a watering can full of dirt they are best buds. 
Now they are on the move.  John's container is empty so I am sure they are scouting out another good place to dig up some dirt with their hands.

Who needs a sandbox?
