We have a very simple fire-pit in the backyard that we started last fall and just remade this spring. A few weekends ago we did a clean up in the back yard and got the pit all ready for this year's roastings. Boy, I haven't heard the end of "when are we going to make s'mores mom?" since then either.
This past Friday we did just that: roasted smores, had friends over for a sleepover and everything.
It had been a long week so I told the kids to get the sticks and we would get to it. I have to say that it was just what I needed: to sit mesmerized by the flames and hear my kids and their friends have a blast right in our back yard.
Simplicity at it's finest...
