*Grilling out on our deck*

Guest post written by Michelle Lewis

One of my favorite things for my family and I to do during the summer is to grill out in our backyard. It just makes fixing dinner seem so much more fun and it makes convincing little ones to eat their food a little bit easier too. Plus, we have that extra family time added in there. We just finished building a new deck this summer and have moved most of our grilling out and some of our backyard activities to the deck.

I was online looking up safety precautions to take when you're grilling out on a deck when I ran across the site I looked through it and after that I decided that we should use it to replace our siding, which I noticed was looking pretty worn up against our brand new deck.

I did find some extra safety tips for barbecue grilling on our back deck though and have been enforcing them with my husband and the kids. I always remind them that it's better to be careful and have fun instead of careless and have to clean up the mess from an accident.
