MAKING S'MORES & MEMORIES

We came home late Friday night to keep our three grandsons for our daughter and her husband to go to the Alabama football game yesterday. The weather was so nice and pretty cool late in the afternoon, so we decided that we would roast some hotdogs last night. My DH cut some sticks and they got an old swing to sit on and the roasting began!! As we were eating the hotdogs, I asked the boys if they had ever had s'mores. They all said, YES! Zack said, "We have them for breakfast sometimes!" He was talking about the S'mores Pop Tarts! I told them that we could make some by taking graham crackers, Hersey chocolate bars, and roasted marshmallows. They had never done this. (I was really happy about this because I wanted it to be something special). They knew all about roasting marshmallows, and as each one had his marshmallow just right for melting the chocolate, I had the crackers & Hersey bar ready. All three boys loved the s'mores.

This is Zack right before he took his first bite. He said, "Um,um....this is SO GOOD!" Of course, most little boys love sitting around a fire outside. The s'mores made it a whole lot better and made some memories of eating s'mores that didn't come from a box!

Oh I love these pics. I love sitting out by the fire also. With living in the country this is what we do alot of Friday and Saturday nights to entertain ourself. To me this is so much better than being in the big city at the movies or out to dinner. Family and quality fun time.
