Spring Fun!

For years Andy has dreamed of a backyard that could hold a small fire pit.  He has really missed cooking out on an open fire.  This past Black Friday I ventured out to Target and found this small fire pit. Spring I figured it was a start and we could see if this was something that would work with a couple of small kids.

Sunday was the test firing!  Andy built a fire and we roasted hot dogs and toasted marshmallows!  It was a fun First Day of Spring thing to do!  Even though it was a bit nippy – we laughed and enjoyed the smoky smell of the wood!  It reminded us of being at PopPop and Grammy’s!  I’m looking forward to more family times like this this spring/ summer!

Spring 2Spring 3Matt isn’t hiding from the camera – just hiding from the smoke blowing into his face!!

Spring 4Drew was there too – confined to a high chair!  He is too mobile and the fire pit isn’t too sturdy.  Spring 5It was so much fun!  Loving life!!!
