We have concrete!

So Friday they came and covered the yard in plastic. They had already framed and done the re-bar for the concrete but with the pending rain decided to wait until this week to lay the concrete. The plastic did it's job, they pulled it up on Monday to let it dry all the way out, and were able to lay the concrete yesterday.
Yesterday morning before they poured the concrete!

Here is the first look at the concrete! It has a grey look because they put an acid wash on it to give what will ultimately be what is called a salt finish. It get's sprayed on, they let it dry, today they are power washing it off. The color will be sandstone, which is maybe a shade darker than the coping. They will also be putting saw cuts in the concrete to prevent cracking. I will post more pictures tomorrow so you can see the finished color.

We are looking forward to going out in our backyard once fact we are going to barbeque tonight! Woo! Hhoo!
