I've got to explain Anthony's fashion a bit. He's still wearing his jammies, and had mixed the upper from a cute little Japanese kimono-type sleeping ensemble, and the bottom from a girl's set of western pajamas. (Why a girl's set? Because he wanted to try them.) Anyway, either set looks cute, but the mix-n-match doesn't really “work”, fashion wise, especially with the shoes.

Anyway, back to the sand castle. All these pictures were taken by my sister while I was inside frantically trying to get my Lightroom stuff ready for the Adobe Lightroom 2 launch. I have taken the liberty to crop some of them a bit, though...
