Smores in the Backyard

Hello everyone!

There's nothing quite like a little summer tradition of sitting around a campfire making smores.  That's just what we did this weekend.  In fact, we did it in our own backyard!



So, I filled a plate with the ingredients for smores and headed out to the campfire that my husband built.


It was a very nice night out.  Perfect for sitting around a fire.


Roasting marshmallows.  Our dog, Max, joined in the fun too.  He collected sticks for us!


We had fun.  Now time to go in and wash our sticky hands!  Ha!

We are expecting several days of rain this week.  Guess we will be inside for awhile now.

Thanks for stopping by!

Great memory making! We love to make smores when we camp but we put a little fire pit in our backyard for all the other times. Yum!

That looked like such fun! We had a wiener roast in the back yard a couple of nights before the wedding - it will be the last one until the fall as we are now under wild fire restrictions and may not burn anything at all, even in the indoor fireplace.

That is what we are going to be doing this week! Isn't it so much fun. We are driving home from the lake right now :)

Have an awesome week.

Would be nice to this outdoors for my kids some day - hopefully soon. They keep asking - we have done it indoors over the stove - not the same excitement but still delicious.

Oh Kelly, i wish I could find someone to do that with me....but then again, if I made a campfire, I think the neighbors would call the fire dept!!...One day, I will have that fireplace!!...I remember the great summers with "the kids"...the little things like making smores makes everyone happy!

Kelli said...

What a fun night! Every summer I tell myself that we need a fire pit so we can make smores.
