First Summer Family Night

During the last week of school, John and I caught a nasty cold.  It was so bad that we both called in on Friday and the whole weekend was spent sneezing, coughing, aching, and sleeping for all of us.  Except the kids of course felt better after two days and we were still fighting the worst of the cold so it was pretty crazy around our house while we let them run wild.  

The first days of "summer" were spent cooped up inside and by Tuesday, everyone was itching to get outside and enjoy the beautiful evening.  What better way to do so than to light a fire, roast some marshmallows, and have some good old S'mores.  Or "marshmallow san-wiches" as Ethan likes to call them.  We had S'mores for dessert for about nights in a row.  (The other nights were done in the microwave!)  I had to cut it off and explain that S'mores were special treats - not every day things.
