This weekend the boys had their first s'mores experience. It was a lot of fun for them to help Mark build a fire and watch it grow bigger and brighter as the sky grew darker. They got to roast their own marshmallows, though they only had the patience to hold their poles for about 30 seconds before deciding they were too tired for such a job and handed them over to us. We let them stay up late so they could get the full effect of the fire, and also so they could watch the stars. Just one more thing we can cross off our summer bucket list.

As Mark stoked the fire, sparks flew up, which the boys thought were really cool.
Concentrating hard on eating their s'mores and watching the fire.
