We’ve been doing a little bit of yard work every weekend for the past few. One downfall of new construction home buying, is that you don’t really get much excitement when it comes to landscaping. And by not much excitement, I mean a dirt backyard and about 10 plants.
This weekend, we finally finished a bed we’ve been working on behind the basketball hoop, complete with some flowers that have been thriving for nearly a month. It’s practically a miracle! We also finished a bed on the side of our house to run alongside our walkway that we hope to be done in the next couple of months.
While we were dreaming big dreams of our soon to be built fire pit, we decided that instead of waiting on our easy peasy gas one, we needed to have a bonfire in our little pit. The boys absolutely love it and I love anything that we all can do together and enjoy.
When I was out at CVS this week grabbing some of my favorite Gold Emblem Abound snacks, (no artificial preservatives or flavors in the whole line make them our go-to snacks and these are my boys faves!) I saw this box of organic honey grahams that we hadn’t tried before. I knew we would be out working in the yard and hoped s’mores were in our future.
It wasn’t quite dark enough for a fire, but we don’t like to mess with bedtime around here.
Cooper loves to set his marshmallow on fire. I LOVE this pic The Hubs grabbed of his cooking process!
