We Want Some More Smores'


This truly shows how far behind I am...The night before the 4th we decided we would do smores one night for dessert. I absolutely love smores and for some reason it had been forever since we had them. When I was much younger(like in school younger) I used to come home and make them in the toaster oven. I'd put mini chocolate chips on one side of the graham cracker and mini marshmallows on the other side..put them in the toaster and let them get soft and gooey then stick them together. They were oh so good but I won't tell how many I consumed at a time. Sometimes I forget that we need to put forth the effort to do simple things with our kids...it's little memories like this that they will carry with them forever.


I've found as I've been organizing my pictures that I don't concentrate as much on getting pics of the older kids when the babies are around. Probably because they're off outside or watching a movie and the little ones are right in my face 24/7. I'm making more of an effort to get pics of all of them as much as possible...and my husband thought I never put down the camera before :)


Here's my Caleb...with one huge marshmallow stuck in his tiny little mouth. I absolutely can not get enough of him...he's just the coolest thing in the world..minus the 2 year old attitude of course!



Caleb was not so sure about smores. He studied it for a few minutes...


Maybe if I lick it I can tell if this is good or bad....


Surely anything with marshmallows and chocolate together can't be too bad..might as well take a bite and see...I haven't found anything I haven't liked yet so why not?

Okay well the hunt is over...I found something Caleb doesn't like...that's right...not big on smores at all! He took one bite and put it down. Ate marshmallows the rest of the night.


Jacob actually only ate one..he was too busy swinging. He said he liked it but he left it sitting for a while before he came back to it. Me..once it's done I'm all into it and it's gone before you know it. Maybe that's just one of my flaws :)


Lucas absolutely loved smores...I believe 3 was his final tally.



Of course..what's a post without Allie. She didn't get left out of the fun..she spent the entire time swinging with her Daddy feeding her chocolate whenever her little heart desired! She's got it made!!!

I couldn't agree more, its the simple things we so often overlook that have the potential to be a fond memory for our kids! I loved this entire post and think you captured the moment in a wonderfully reflective way :)

I love your fire pit. Mark and I have been talking about buying one of those. That sounds like so much fun, just hanging out in the backyard roasting marshmallows. Before you know it, I'm sure my kids would convince their daddy to pitch a tent and spend the night out there. :)

I still have yet to do this and really need to get my head out my butt and let loose with tons of chocolate, mellows and grahams. YUM! The kids would love it and so would my thighs. ;)
