The kids have created a path from the pool deck to the garden area. They ride their dump trucks down the little hill over and over and over again, most often with Smooch chasing after them.
At first I discouraged the dump truck play, but after watching them “catch air” when they hit the little hole halfway down and crack up laughing, I decided to make it a garden path when I re-seed the yard next month. Before I know it, the pure pleasure of riding in a dump truck will no longer be fun. Then I can have my nicely manicured back yard. For now, the dump truck path, happy kids and puppy will rule.
Go mom for being flexible and trying super hard to live in the moment 🙂
