We finally broke in the fire pit in our back yard this year. It has only taken us 3 years, but in our defense we've had a baby to take care of each summer or been pregnant since living at our current home. The kids had themselves a blast. They particularly loved the vegan s'mores. Evelyn liked hers as a sandwich and Elliott ate each ingredient singularly in true 3 year picky fashion. Most importantly, they followed directions and stayed away from the fire and no one got hurt. We're planning on another one for Labor Day weekend. Hopefully the weather cooperates.
