Backyard Chores

Backyard Chores
Alan is helping me install raised garden beds in my backyard this weekend. Charlie and Jake are, of course, not helping! But definitely supplying a lot of comic relief.
The raised garden beds will help keep the dogs from digging up the vegetables and make the small yard a little neater and easier to maintain.
Jake is quite the digger, so I was worried that having him watch us digging up parts of the yard would encourage this behavior, but he seemed to just think the nice cool dirt that we dug up was a pretty good place to take a nap.

Jake and Charlie were playing with toys and chasing each other around the yard while we worked. And by the time Alan and I were ready to take a break, the dogs also thought it was a good time for a nap.

Jake usually plays hard and then also naps hard. When he's tired, he quickly finds a quiet spot and just passes out. Nothing wakes him. It's absolutely adorable.
I can't wait to get these beds filled with soil and start planting! Summer is right around the corner.
