Well since summer has started so have our weekends off! This weekend we drove up to Warsaw to work in my parents yard with Phil's landscaping skills. We got everyone gift certificates for one free job as long as they provided room and board. Well they choose to knock off one hard project off their list. A fire ring. This isn't just any plain old car rim fire pit mind you. Now it is lined with hand selected bricks (That was my job) with field stone around where the fire is actually going to be. We (okay Phil) dug out the pit a few inches in a donut shape and leveled it all out and then filled it with paver base stuff, tamped it down level and laid the bricks on top and filled the whole thing up with play sand to keep it in place. I didn't do much to help but I was there for moral support and drinks and snacks! I planned on going garage selling with Mom while the boys worked in the yard but instead we made muffins for the men at church the next day for father's day. We took pictures of the whole process (of the ring, not the muffins) but my parents have those. We also went to Dunkirk to visit a friend that just got back from his mission to Japan. I never had met him but I know his younger brother and his older brother from school and church.
