The Dig Site

Our property has a hill rising up behind the house. The backside of the hill is probably the warmest spot here as the sun hits it at a nice angle. This is where Xander has made his dig site.

This spoon ain't cutting it, I want a trowel!

Worf helping to dig.

At first he was just excavating rocks but now he likes to bring his cars and a bucket of water up to play with in the dirt. It gets pretty dirty but he sure has fun.

Putting more dirt on the cars.

Mud on his face.

We had several wonderfully sunny days last week and we spent the mornings up there. Xander digging and playing with his cars while our dogs, Poppy Seed, McCoy, and new pup Worf raced around him.

I want to build a comfy storage bench up there. A nice under the seat cubby to keep some digging toys, balls for the dogs, and a comfy cushion. That way I’d only have to make one trip carrying our snacks and his bucket of water versus the multiple trips with toys, camp chairs, etc…

Snack time!

Tired doggies.

Have I mentioned that Worf is a chewer?

Do you have any special places in your yard?
