Bye Bye Boom Boom Mountain

Before the rains started, the construction crew moved Landon’s giant dirt hill, so we had to say bye bye Boom Boom Mountain.

Mountain climbing seems to be missing something

The construction in the backyard has created quite the maze of obstacles, some more fun than others. Landon loved having his giant hill of dirt that gave him the perfect perch. Before the rains started earlier this week, though, the construction crew spread the dirt in preparation for the pavers to be installed next week. Sadly, that means we’ve had to say bye bye Boom Boom Mountain. Unfortunately, Landon appears to still be trying to climb it.

    It looks like he enjoys running on the tarp anyway. Or just running, period. He’s got to be fun to watch.
