Building the Fire Pit and Grill
After much debate and agonizing over where and how to build and place a fire pit and grill, we finally agreed on where it should reside. Nik scavenged a really cool grate that cleaned up real easy and the fire beneath our buns was ignited! The kids helped heave dirt back to the designated spot while Nik dug and placed and then replaced all of the concrete pieces. I stood, watched and photographed. When it was time, I did assist in in the building effort by hauling buckets of river rock and sand at Nik's command. It took him three solid hours, and well into the night, to finish this project. When it was all said and done and the children were snug in their beds, we initiated the pit with a nice, warm fire and a glass of wine. Great job family!
