Barefoot by the Sea: S'mores!

S'mores!

It seems like nothing screams Summer, like an ooey, gooey, delicious S'more! I have honestly never been a fan but then again, I also hadn't had one perfectly toasty over a fire.
This past weekend, my husband finally got to use his new firepit that he had been SO excited to use.  We made a small, simple patio using pavers that we scored for $25 on craigslist!  After a weekend, we were ready to roll!  The girls settled in for an evening with Dad and the entire neighborhood.  The more, the merrier!  It was a wonderful evening - the type that you remember as a kid (or a Mom)!
Summer, by definition means later evenings for us.  It means sleeping in and enjoying some things we dont always have.  I'll admit a S'MORE fits the season appropriately. 
Rich and flavorful.  You never want the goodness to end! Especially when it's put together the "right" way.  My husband claims there is definetely a correct way to assemble the all mighty treat and since this was his show, I figured I'd let the kids be the judges.  You know kids, they are brutely honest.

They all agreed with him...he makes one darn good S'MORE!
But, just like special Summer nights with Dad, it has to end sometime.  I have to remind myself that Summer wouldn't be nearly as special if we lived it all year round.

Or at least that's what I'm trying to convince myself as we approach these last sweet weeks.

  1. Jess, you make me want to go out right now and have a lovely fire and make a s'more! But, it's to late so I will have to just enjoy yours for tonight! Although it feels like October here tonight, I hope we have more summer nights to enjoy :)
