This year we did not campout. Both families agreed that it was just too hot to be camping out. Sir Husband was too tired to set up the tent because of house remodeling and I was too tired to argue because of working at VBS all week. So we did a “Let’s not and say we did” thing.
As planned we take the long hike over to the neighbors to eat there. We had sausage, deviled eggs, coleslaw, potato salad, green beans, and watermelon. Water for the kids and beer for the adults.
The adults sat at the newly acquired picnic table and the kids sat at “the bar”. Their words, not ours. By this time Sir Son had gone home with swollen arms from bug bites and breathing problems from the candles. He is so not a wilderness person.
The girls went swimming in the pool lake.
After the swim and a yummy dinner, we take the long wilderness hike across the street, into the wilds of our backyard.
We have fire. We love fire. Yes, it is 8:00pm and still in the upper 80’s, but we must have roasted marshmallows and s’mores.
While waiting on the adults to get their act together, the girlies practice roasting. The sunglasses they are wearing are actually “smoke protectors”.
Sir Husband always has to make me a few of the roasted marshmallows. He seems to think he is the ONLY one who knows how to make the perfect roasted marshmallow.
And here it is.
Hmmm, maybe he is right.
And here is a s’mores. I don’t like s’mores. Everyone should know that chocolate bars should be frozen before eating, not melted.
We had a wonderful wilderness adventure at the Crazy Cove Campsite!
