Just a few images of the much-blabbed-about patio. There was NOTHING back here for the first year and a half, so I'm thrilled to finally have a little retreat. It's in the shade all day, which makes it really nice to enjoy when its warm. Best part: Natalie will play by herself for an hour+ ... I just have to watch occasionally to make sure she isn't climbing the chairs (which fall over on her) or digging in my plants. I love being able to sit in the dining room at the table (like I am now) and see that she's playing safely while doing my own stuff!
Under the tarp= grill, behind which sits the a/c compressor.
