a really nice day
In the afternoon we had a campfire in the backyard. In summertime this is an evening event, but it was kind of nice having a daytime fire. Much easier to find sticks for marshmallows. The kids are pretty interested in learning to start and maintain a fire, so they mostly got this going themselves, though Dad gave lots of advice. It's harder than it looks to get and keep a fire going!
I will miss s'mores over the winter. Not exactly the healthiest snack option ever, but there is just something about them. I can't eat more than two, but I really love those two.
I was thinking all along this might be our last backyard fire of the season, but lately I have been thinking about making Solstice more of a holiday around here, and a fire might be nice that day too. Anyway, right after the fire we had to get back to real life, there was gymnastics class to attend, a house to pick up, dinner to make, a whiny child looking to pick a fight....you know, the usual:). It was a really nice day though, all in all. Now cold weather is heading our way, along with a good chance of some snow!
