Hip-hip hooray, we finished the fire-pit today!

Yay! Another yard project finished! I am almost embarassed to show the picture above, but it is necessary for you to understand the magnitude of this project! haha! For those of you who haven't seen our yard recently, it is weed-mania! When we bought this house, the backyard was just dirt and not finished. So we put sod in and extended the concrete out back. Then we didn't do much after that! Plus to top it off, our sprinklers suck and we get NO water pressure, so we are constantly dealing with dying grass. The actual fire-pit was given to us by justin's step-dad last christmas...see, we had good intentions! So we cleared it out and put weed fabric down.

Above is a half-way done picture.

Here is the firepit area completed! I love the idea of putting brick around it, Justin has great ideas!

Actually Justin should get all the credit for the finished product, he did 90% of the work! All in all, it turned out great! We haven't used it yet. We were going to try it out tonight but we were occupied with another thing, but that is another post in itself...
