S'more, Please {{Summer Bucket List}}

This summer has ranked right up there as one of the best. While our time together as a family has been somewhat limited, we've done the best we can to make the most out of the time we have when we are together.

Last weekend was the epitome of summer. We swam, spent a little time on the water, grilled most of our meals, and snuck in an evening of outdoor snacking.

That leads me right to the high fives.

1. Call me crazy, but I think summer nights were designed specifically for… 
S'MORES! 
*Please excuse the iPhone photos. I didn't have my good camera immediately on hand, and didn't want to miss the moment by going to grab it.
2. I'm fairly certain we have a little pyro on our hands. Marcus is mildly obsessed with fire. The little man had such a blast singeing each marshmallow we put on his skewer.
3.  However, he also had no problems eating said scorched treats. Yes - plural. The kid ate three s'mores. By.him.self.
4. Marcus wasn't great about keeping his snacking a tidy affair. But, we found his mess pretty entertaining.
5.  Such a successful, sweet little evening. Hopefully we can do it all again this weekend!

Now, please excuse me while the Macke clan enjoys an unexpected three-day weekend (thanks to the 20+ hour work day Scott pulled yesterday).

Have a great weekend!

  9. I love s'mores. Hannah has been asking to make them, but I haven't had a chance to build a fire pit. I promised her a s'mores night after we move.

  13. Yummy! I love the camera view too. I tried to give Myles a marshmellow before. He put it in his mouth and then spit it out! He tried it three different time and spit it out everytime!! He will not eat sweets, but will kill some pizza and French fries! He is so my kid.
