Freebie Fire Pit

One of my absolute favorite summer treats is s'mores.  We also love an evening spent sitting by the fire, relaxing and chatting, or hanging out with friends.  Ever since we got married, we've been talking about having a fire pit.  After we moved Colorado, we decided it was time to make it happen.  The evenings here are cool, even after a hot day, which is the perfect recipe for a fire pit evening. 

Our budget has been extremely tight the last few months, so we were on a mission to build a fire pit in our backyard for free.  After looking on Craigslist for free materials for a few weeks with no luck, our patience paid off and we scored when our teammate offered us free rocks that he had dug out of his yard when installing a retaining wall.  (Thanks, Hullah's!)

We enjoyed our first evening by the fire pit a couple of weeks ago.  Complete with delicious fire roasted s'mores!  We are looking forward to many more evenings by the fire after we return from our summer travels.


What do you enjoy in the summer?

Another great fire pit is to get the tub out of an old washing machine and use it - works great and already has the holes in it1111
