I love the patio! Go Vols!
It really is perfect, at least for now! We can go outside and run around and throw balls and ride our wheeled toys and really enjoy the sunshine and fresh air! It's great! Next Spring, we hope to put up an actual fence around the backyard, so we'll have a whole lot of space to run around in then, while still keeping the horde contained and safe from falling in the creek! Very important!
