last blast of summer.
The boys and I made homemade marshmallows yesterday. So what else can you do but start a fire, get out the skewers, and roast some marshmallows and make s'mores!
We have family in town this weekend, so they came over last night and we all sat around the fire. The kids played and ran around and when it was time for marshmallows, we invited the kids playing in the alley to come up and join us. Everyone had fun roasting marshmallows and fixing their s'mores. So yummy! The boys were very proud that they had homemade marshmallows, and one four year old told his mom, "There are two recipes we need to get from them. First, the homemade pizza recipe, second this marshmallow recipe." :)
After the kids were stuffed with graham crackers and marshmallows they rode their bikes, played hide and seek, and then put together a bunch of glow bracelets grandma brought as a special treat.
The adults all sat and watched the kids run until the darkness descended and the kids went inside for bedtime. It felt like were were celebrating the ending of summer - and while I know we will have many more hot days, those long summer nights are indeed almost at an end. Lovely evening!
