By the fire...

Weekly now we've been having a backyard campfire. It's become a sort of family tradition! The boys look forward to it all day as they gather wood and brush for the fire. This week we stepped it up a notch from smores and actually cooked our dinner over the fire. Granted, it was only hot dogs and Frito pies, but JP and Danny said it was the best dinner they ever had! It might have had something to do with the cool weather, cooking it themselves, or maybe it was just the relaxed way we all came together to enjoy the evening.

All I know is that we spent three hours by the fire that night. No TV, no obligations, no distractions except for silly stories, jokes, and listening to the coyotes in the distance.

It was the perfect evening, and maybe a new family tradition.
