Backyard Smores

Friday night we thought about going camping. We were in a camping mood! The weather was so perfect, but Jon had to be at church Saturday morning and we didn't want to have to pack up in a rush.
Instead, we decided to cook out and have smores in the backyard! While I was fixing food inside and Jon was grilling, the kids got into a muddy spot from Thursday's torrential rain! Notice Jordan's feet...and bottom...

And Lawson! Jordan threw a muddy vine onto his head and it splattered EVERYWHERE!
Jordan loves cheeseburgers (like her momma!) but Lawson has ALWAYS chosen hotdogs....this is his first cheeseburger!!!
Lately, the kids and I love to take our lunch outside and eat in our new swingset's fort. It's such a simple thing, but the kids LOVE it!!! They were excited when we told them we were eating outside, because this was the first time Daddy got to eat up there with us!!!
After we finished eating we started getting ready to make smores. Here's Jordan waiting....
"Hmmmm....why are we waiting? This is how I normally eat marshmallows....yum...."
Daddy, our great outdoorsman!
Roasting marshmallows
And eating smores!!! Yum!
Next baths and bedtime...then....that's a wrap!! :)

How creative! You guys are good at making memories that the kids will probably remember for a long time.
