it is the first sunny day in five. the cotton ball clouds are exploding in the bright blue sky the perfect recipe kinda day to initiate the fire pit. the kids built it from left over stones from the neighbor who so generously gave us their old pool last summer. remember that? ( which has a hole in the liner .. bummer ) so we made a run to wal-mart and got the need supplies. it turned out to be a shorts and sweatshirt kinda afternoon though. my favorite kind:)
while at home depot yesterday nikki spotted this picnic table. we bribed dakota to put it together for us underneath our two ginormous trees. right next to the firepit. perfect.
i am seeing it now. lights strung along with some oilcloth bunting. some colorful aidorondack chairs circling the pit and painting and/or staining the picnic table
we are all set for a summer of spontaneous gatherings the smell of fire...the crackling of the logs! ok maybe not the smell of fire..i smelled it all night in my hair. yuck
just what i imagine for a simple summer of fun are you ready for backyard summer fun?
