Thanks Dad

Since my dad knows what a scavenger I am, he could not pass up these two directors chairs when he saw them curb side.  Not a bad option for the new fire pit.



 I sewed new backings and seats for them (pretty straight forward) with $5 worth of Ikea fabric.  I think they are a steal and we will keep them around for a few years yet.

Backyard in the City

So to update on the backyard work...we are now near completion.  Steve threw down a lot of muscle to get this done...we barely fought during the rigging of the gazebo either.  I've flooded a lot of pictures because we are filled with so much pride.

 I painted the old picnic bench and we tied up pallets to cover up where we keep the garbage bins
