We have a fire pit that I fell in love with for several reasons:
1. I LOVE to make s'mores. Fire to me (whether in the fireplace or camping) means s'mores. I ALWAYS have
on hand and if you think I'm saying that just for this post....feel free to check with The Mister.
2. Sitting around a fire pit on a Friday night means we actually TALK to each other. We tell scary stories, we look for shooting stars, we catch up. And before we know it it's bedtime we have spent quality time with each other and without TV or computers.
3. Fire means gathering. We kicked off the summer with a S'mores party and invited some neighbors over to join us. Everyone brought their drink of choice and a sweatshirt (oh what I wouldn't give for a chilly night!) and we supplied all the s'mores fixings...including wet paper towels for littles sticky fingers.
The girls are already planning the next one!
They still talk about running around the backyard with their friends and their flashlights, chocolate smeared over their faces and goopy marshmallows dripping off their fingers. It's a memory they will cherish.
Just as I cherish the memories we make around that fire pit.
