A few years ago, Mamma Nancy (Brandon's mom/my awesome MIL) gifted us a small, covered fire pit for Christmas that we have never been able.. so I thought it would be fun to make s'mores, sit by the fire, and enjoy the warm summer evening. Sounds totally picturesque, right?
|Please ignore our yard/patio.. they are both a work in progress (the previous owners did a real number on the lawn..)|
I knew that Jax would require a lot of supervision (because toddler.. and fire), but I didn't realize I'd have to keep the lighter away from him the entire time because he wanted to copy dad and light the fire himself.. Yeesh. Anyway, he had no interest roasting marshmallows or eating delicious s'mores (he couldn't get past the lighter), so our little family adventure lasted an entire 3 minutes. Oh well.. there's always next summer!
