"Look, Mom! I'm a hippo!" The verdant green is actually artificial turf, the surrounding rocks are very unfriendly to bare feet, and Blake is listening to his tunes while pulling weeds as a consequence for some infraction. He was very good-natured about it. This is our Phoenix backyard, for the most part. I really like it!
And... sorry for the terrible framing of the videos. I am trying to be more cognizant of turning my phone to shoot, but it's obviously not working very well.
