Daddy's Little Helper

So today, Dakota and I went along with Zach to do a couple of minor sprinkler fixes and aerate a couple of yards. Normally when we go with Zach to do things like this we will just hang out in the truck and just play. Dakota LOVES to drive the "big truck." Today I had to kind of help Zach a little bit to find the sprinklers and some parts so we were just hanging out in the yard with Zach. Well, Dakota absolutely had a ball following Zach around and copying EVERY move he made.
So this is where one of the broken sprinklers was. Zach right before this picture had stuck his hand down in the water to feel around. Dakota swished his hand in there the exact same way. Then Zach tossed the broken sprinkler head back down on the ground and Dakota grabbed it and tossed it the exact same way. He just looked up at me and smiled, like what a good helper I am. It was so funny how exact he copied Zach's every move.

Just doing his own thing! (yes in his cowboy boots)

This was by far the funniest thing ever! He thought this handle was made just for him and thought it was so cool to run along with the aerator and he had to literally run because it goes so dang fast.

Zach was so cute and patient with him. He just adores EVERYTHING about Dakota, as do I!

You are such a great helper Dakota and we sure LOVE having you be a part of all we do! I hope you grow up to be just like your daddy!


  1. I'm so glad you guys had LOTS of fun at the CIRCUS, very cute pictures! I LOVE that Dakota does everything the exact same as Zach, nothing beats that! You guys are the CUTEST family! :)

  2. Its so cute how much little boys want to be like their dads! And we are so lucky, because we can hope that they grow up like them too! Zach is a great guy and Dakota is growing up too fast, It's so fun to see your posts Tess, keep it up :)
