Cookout and a Campfire

I have a bit of catching up to do since we were out of town for Spring Break last week!  I want to go back to the very beginning of Spring Break though.  We had Harper's birthday party on Friday night (more on that tomorrow), but the day after we invited Jen and Justen over for a fun impromptu dinner.  We didn't have anything planned for the evening and neither did they, so it worked out perfectly!

We grilled out burgers and then all made our way outside to sit by the fire and make s'mores.  It was pretty chilly, but the kids didn't mind.  They played on the playset, the adults all laughed and enjoyed ourselves.  Everyone had a great time!

It felt like we were camping in our backyard without the actual camping part.  Plus, the boys were in heaven running around collecting sticks to add to the fire.  I just love those kind of nights with nothing really fancy planned, but the nights where everyone is smiling, enjoying themselves, and making memories!  I can't wait for summer so we can have more fun nights like that one, especially when the weather turns warm and we all want to live outdoors!
