Riot Caught His First Tennis Ball
Riot has been very interested in Cisco’s game of catch. I’ve even thrown them more towards Riot to see what he’d do. He try for them, but was never very close. Today Cisco missed and it bounced off his nose and was coming back down toward Riot who hopped up and caught it like a pro.
