family friday :: first fire of the year


last friday while i was out doing my usual thrifting, i came across something we had been looking for since last summer....a fire pit! sure, we could have bought a new one, but knowing that i searched for one and ended up scoring it for $10 makes it even more fabulous! $10 for a fire pit! can you hear my excitement? so during the long holiday weekend, we enjoyed our first family fire on our patio.

we started out with some good old-fashioned hot dogs over the fire on bamboo sticks. the boys gobbled them up before we could even get ours made.


after dogs, we moved on to roasting some marshmallows for s'mores. i cannot even begin to tell you how excited the boys were about this.

the little dude got the first one off the fire and his face thoroughly enjoyed the entire thing. he loves getting into his food. i love this particular photo because you can just see the enjoyment on his face. (sorry to the little dude, this was the only photo i had that didn't have major glare in his glasses. they're a major pain when photographing him.)


while the little dude was working on eating his s'more, daddy tried to help the baby roast his first marshmallow. if you look real close, you can see it didn't end well. i had to take over the roasting from that point on.

watching the baby devour his s'more was a sight to be seen.

there's just something about watching a little kid dig into a special treat.

it's the small things in life that they remember. nothing makes me happier than watching my kids enjoy something new.


finally, just showing off my roasting skills. i'm definitely the roasting queen in this household.

I'll have one of each please! And I just love how the Little Dude is holding out his little pinkies and being all dainty while plastering his face with gloup!

I really do think I'm going to have to start a s'more trend here in the UK! We are totally missing out!
