Way back when, before Craig's knee surgery, we enjoyed ourselves a nice, relaxing, Friday night around our new fire pit.
The fire pit, proudly displaying our favorite collegiate sports team(s) and manufactured by Patina Products, is one Craig has been talking about wanting for a couple of years now, but here's the deal - we could never agree on a team. Craig, the KU fan, suggested we order the Iowa version, since being an Iowa fan is less of the norm in Kansas. I, however, told him he should order the KU version, seeing the fire pit was more of "his" thing than mine.
Fast forward a couple of years and one brilliant idea later, we asked Patina to make us a house-divided version. And they agreed! The first of its doing? Who knows! The awesomest? You betcha!
The fire pit arrived in mid-March, less than one week after placing our order, though it was over a month before we got to test it out! (Thanks, wind, and local burn-bans!) When the weather finally decided to cooperate, we passed on our typical Friday night dinner of Chipotle and decided to do a family cookout instead!
The included BBQ grill was perfect for roasting some weenies.
And the boys loved the college logos!!
Of course, we couldn't let the fire pit opportunity pass without indulging in some s'mores.
After putting the boys to bed, we enjoyed some more quality time around the fire pit with our neighbors and a few adult beverages, of course (NA for me!). It made for the perfect Friday-night-in and we can't wait to do it again soon!
As the for quality of our fire pit, we are very pleased and love the personalization it offers. Shipping was crazy fast and included in the cost was a poker, a BBQ grill, a spark screen, and a weather cover. Customer service was superb and Patina also offers a five-year warranty on all of their fire pits. Check out their classic fire pits here and their collegiate collection here.
