Smores

Smores are one of my favorite things!!!! They are so yummy and ooey and gooey - it just doesn't get much better than that!

On the 4th we decided to do smores and the kids were ready to start way before dark - my kind of people I tell ya. So after my attempted photos and being made fun of by my husband the fire was started and the kids were primed and ready to go.




Last year Allie was just over a year old so she wouldn't really eat the smore - she stuck with the chocolate instead - this year though she actually took a bite out of it. She took a few bites though I don't think she was just crazy over them since she wasn't continuously going back for more and more. She'd rather eat the marshallows and chocolate than anything.



Caleb - well my Caleb - he's a case in and of himself. He was scared of the fire and wasn't big on the roasted marshallows because they were hot. He waned a graham cracker with JUST a marshmallow in it but it had to be a regular marshmallow,not roasted. You can imagine that :)

Here he is terrified of the fire! This marshmallow is roasted!!!! I like mine perfectly toasted on all side yet not burnt at all!!!! I'm picky!

Overall everyone had a great time and we ate way too much - in fact they wanted to do smores again the next night - YUM O!!!!

Mmm! We love s'mores around here, too!

I'm the only one that likes them the "right way" though :-) Nice and hot and melted. Everyone else sticks with almost unheated marshmallows. I'm trying to convert them :-)

We love our smores over here too! Reading this makes me want to go to the beach for a bonfire just for the smores! Will have to do that for sure before summer's over!

We love smores too and having those fire pits make it so convenient to have them all summer long. Fun pictures.

Love the cookout pics:) I enjoy sitting around a fire and just relaxing. I love roasted marshmallows ( Totally burnt looking... Is there a such thing as a burnt one lol;). Thanks for sharing your great day.

Your backyard looks like mine!! Toys galore. :) I'm loving your fire pitt too by the way.. My hubs is so country that he prefers a freakin rusted barrell over a nice, rod iron fire pitt. I will win this battle.... stay tuned, lol.
