Did you know that Nick's a smoker? Of meat, though, not cigarettes. :) He's had this smoker for about a year now, but only today did we finally have someone come to get it bricked in! It looks great.
Next project? An arbor over the second patio slab. Nick, with the help of his dad and his brothers, is going to tackle that project in a couple of weeks hopefully. I think we'll spend more time enjoying our back patio now that it looks nicer!
