Boom Boom Balance Bench

Landon reaches for an expert level skill on the Boom Boom Balance Bench. Is disaster imminent?

Boom Boom Balance Bench

Despite the requirement of leashes as we wait on our fence install, we enjoy our backyard time. Landon loves to be on the furniture, but he decided to move from one bench to the other because he wanted beside the Hu-Dad. Notice the focused face. The fancy footwork. Yeah, it ended about as poorly as you expected, but we did get a great moment on the Boom Boom Balance Bench.

    Hu-Dad-I agree-it’s pure LOVE but I also agree Boom Boom could have done it the other way as you suggested! Glad he wasn’t hurt!

      Of course, he could’ve jumped down to the ground and then up on the other bench rather than try the hire-wire act.

        High wire acts are more fun and show so much more commitment. 🙂
        Such a sweetie . . . and your backyard looks fantastic . . . the herd must love it.

        But that would be an extra step that would take more time and he was focused on getting next to you! 😉

Even after a long hike, a Queen must always avoid a fashion faux pas like, say, an out of place tongue. No, the Queen and Decorum are intact.
