…and I’m not referring to the old TV show. Even if my husband and I are finally watching this show and catching up on the episodes via Netflix:). We had a backyard family date on Friday night with a fire. It was a complete blast. We decided it was the best way to have the camping experience with little kids…build a fire and cook dinner on it without ever having to load or unload a thing in the car!
We went and got hot dogs and marshmallows and came home and started all the campfire prep. J and Matt were on the fire pit duty while Caleb and I gathered sticks. This might or might not be the only time we pick up sticks in our yard:)
J might take after his mama and be a fire pyro. He would squeal throwing a stick into the fire and watching it spurt out little flares every single time. Caleb is more the cautious one and using a stick to pushing another stick into the fire. Reagan bailed on our date before too long, and can I tell you how convenient it was to just tuck her nicely into her sweet crib?! I would still LOVE to go camping sometime this fall with the boys, but for now, this worked very nicely for a fun night full of memories!
I think the highlight of the night was playing chubby bunny-what a good laugh for everyone!
