Fire Pit Finished

I picked up a few bricks yesterday and we finally got to work on finishing the fire pit.  Yes, we are short by exactly one brick (not a bad guess!), but that will be taken care of next weekend.  The bottom two layers which we laid a while back were now settled in mud and ash since we have been using the unfinished pit.  After much digging and playing the mud we finally had them all arranged and neatly packed in.  We cleaned out the bottom and laid a few rocks.  What a difference!  And, grass is poking up where we put grass seed already!  We were so excited!  Maybe there will already be some green out there in time for the party!  I’m hoping it is strong enough be then so we don’t crush it all! 

Yes, one quite obvious brick is missing! ;)

And here is the new chairs and table that we picked up over the weekend.  They will be getting a special paint treatment…soon!

At first I was disappointed to not have found two of these style chairs that match, but we now think it will be fun to do them indifferent colors and embrace the uniqueness!  (Plus, I couldn’t beat the price we found these for!)

Overall, it was a very productive and fun weekend.  And, our softball team won our first game!
