We've actually used our firepit 2wice in the last week or so! I'm so proud! We always talk about using it...but its usually while we're out and about enjoying a Saturday or Sunday. So by the time we get home and have dinner we crash out and don't make it outside. New neighbors and summertime makes for great excuses to have a fire! Ned loves playing with Justice (our neighbors little puppy) He's real gentile with her- but in a few months she'll be as big as he is and they can really wrestle!
