Making Memories with a Fire Pit

Words can’t describe how excited I was the day I received an email from my Real Farmwives of America buddy saying we had a new partnership with Avant Garden Decor.  I could pick out anything I wanted from their huge catalog! Whooppeee!! The Farmer and I had wanted to buy a fire pit for the summer so the kids could enjoy making some memories on our patio.

Over the summer The Farmer finished building our outdoor patio and entertaining area.  The barn that used to stand here was an old bathhouse for immigrant labor that worked here long before my family bought the farm decades ago.  We finally tore down the walls and left the concrete slab, built an awning over it and added some flowers and mulch! We ended up with a great area for entertaining friends and roasting marshmallows with the kids!

Both girls had a great time roasting marshmallows.  We had a roaring fire going, although by the time I took the picture it had died down.  The wood was very wet and we had a hard time keeping the fire going.  But that was our own fault, and the recent rain we had on our wood stack, and the not the fault of the fire pit.

You can see the size of the fire we had going.  You might also note the lighter fluid in The Farmer’s hands.  Thank goodness this fire pit has great removable sides on it! And you might notice my Monkey doing some strange sword fighting dance with her roasting stick. 
And even though we wouldn’t let the Lion Cub roast his own marshmallows, he was his typical happy self just to be outside and enjoying the evening!
I can’t even begin to explain how lucky I feel to have had this chance to review this firepit.  My kids are making memories as we chase the daylight in the evening hours. We used the firepit again over the weekend.  At the end of the evening, they told me their best part of the day was sitting outside and talking as the fire roared in the background.  We are making memories. Memories I have sketched in my mind and etched in my heart.
