Sometime in July Dan convinced me it would be a good idea to build a patio in our back yard off our deck. So one day, he and I went out and started moving stones around and digging in the dirt. Then it got really HOT, as it tends to do in July. Now a couple of months later, we still have a mud pit in our backyard, but Dan has made some progress. The mud pit now has a nice retaining wall around it. The next steps include putting down rock and sand and then adding the pavers. We are hopeful that it will be complete by the end of fall.

Somehow I don't have pictures with the second side of the wall.
