We had the kids invite friends over in shifts- which worked out well. The younger and the middle group got along great and we even were able to have a few cousins in the mix.
Jay was in charge of getting the fire started- and I wondered why he was taking a while to get outside and get it going- he reminded me that the starting of the fire was more fun for these kids than actually sitting around it.
He was right- they were all diligent in searching around the yard for stuff to burn and getting it all ready to go.
I drew the line with Tucker and his friend.
I loved sitting out back and ignoring everything that "needed' to be done inside.
And the s'mores were yummy (and messy) as usual.
As the boys friends left Savanna's friends arrived.
We had a fun 2nd round after dark- and all those photos were with my phone.
We did another firepit two nights ago- and I tried out something I saw on Pinterest.
Oreo cookie s'mores. It was yum. So yum. Way better than a plain S'more. A s'moreo is the way to go!
I love having the pit that Jay put in the backyard. I love how for now it brings the kids together- and for the most part they get along. I love that we have used it a few times again this year, and am hopeful for more before it gets too hot.
