Riley has many “favorites” including Halloween, Riding in the Truck, Going to Grammie’s and Stopping for ice cream, but his all time favorite is helping in the yard! When I cut grass he has to help and will have a meltdown if left in the house. It is shocking to me that he is terrified of the vacuum cleaner, but thinks the lawnmower is safe…
We took our annual trip to the flower store and brought home several new flowers to decorate the porch and front yard. I love to line the porch railing with flowers, but Bailey and Rufus have a history of accidentally knocking the flower pots into the yard so we are changing up the plan this year. As soon as Riley saw potting soil he was on the porch pounding his feet just in case I forgot that he would want to help!
Riley loves to dig so you have to be careful that he doesn’t help too much and destroy the plants. He was pretty busy yesterday and even with a thunderstorm he managed to get all of the flowers potted. He only had to take 3 breaks to wander next door to play with their puppy!
