We tend to have firy hot summers and warm, warm, warm falls. So when it's cool enough to build a fire in the backyard, we soak it in. This past weekend, we had the perfect opportunity to do just that.
My husband built a fire while I finished cleaning up dinner. The kids rounded up graham crackers, marshmallows, and chocolate. And we all met outside.
At the end of a long day, it was nice to slow down and enjoy the evening together. There's something about lingering around a fire that makes time slow down, conversation easy, and family moments sweeter.
