Fireside Chats

We had a busy weekend, including a fun night at my parent's house for a cookout. The weather was gorgeous, so we took advantage. The kids flew a kite, and played croquet. Okay, they attempted to play croquet. It was more like the two boys walked around banging the mallets on the fence, floor, whatever they could find. Thankfully the mallets were light plastic and nothing they could do any major destruction with. Boys!
I got to hold Baby Brynley and put her to sleep!
We enjoyed some steaks and chicken on the grill with all the trimmings. Then it was time for s'mores by the fire. Why is it the adults ended up having more fun with this than the kids. Jeff even had special s'mores recipes involving bananas and peanut butter!
The house across the alley was having a party. Apparently they came over earlier in the evenign to let my folks know, in case it got loud. Well since my parents yard looks right over into theirs, we could hear some music- they had speakers on the patio. But it ended up that we were actually louder than them. At one point, it sounded like they were having karaoke and Mandy yelled at them to turn it up! lol

We had a great time. Last night, while reading Will his nighttime story, we got to a page where Tigger and Pooh are camping out and build a fire. Tigger roasts marshmallows by the fire. Will immediately said "hey, we did that last night and i want to do it again!".

Michelle - you are amazing. Such cute pics and the wording is very informative and cute. Of course you have a precious big boy to talk about that makes things even more entertaining. Great Job! Auntie
