Having campfires with marshmallows in the backyard is one of our all-time favorite things. Occasionally our neighbor friends will come over and join the kids too.
They just love sitting around, telling stories and roasting marshmallows. And I love the smell of the burning wood.
Years ago, we had a big birthday camp-out with cousins and friends for Parker and Ethan’s birthday and Chris ran to the store before all the boys showed up to buy a fire pit. That one fell apart long ago, but since then, late night campfires are part of our summertime ritual.
It’s something our family really enjoys.
