A Dirt Racetrack

One of the benefits to Hu-Dad’s backyard project is the addition of a dirt racetrack complete with walls built solely for our entertainment.

When we posted photos yesterday of a mud mountain, some were concerned it was too close to the fence. As you can see, that was just an optical illusion. Instead, Hu-Dad built a dirt racetrack complete with walls just for us! Oh, sure, he claims they are actually erosion control fences to keep the mud from sliding away, so we like that too.

There is one other advantage to mud mountain and those walls. We can play a massive game of hide and seek.

    Boom Boom is having a wonderful time PLUS games of hiding from each other. I think this backyard project is by far the BEST Christmas present ever for them!
