The Big Patio Project!

Ever since we got married, Bubba and I have dreamed of having our own house and being able to have a great grill, patio, basketball court, and basically awesome outdoor space.  Finally, after 14 years of marriage and 22 years of moving for the Army, we have our home for good and are able to make our dreams come true.  This past week, we had a patio, basketball court, and new front walk installed by a great concrete company.  I wanted to maintain the integrity of our old house and so we chose stamped concrete (way cheaper than brick, pavers, decks, or composite).  We are very happy with the results and have already had a dinner cookout as well as a breakfast cookout this morning.  Here are the pictures I promised.
