Lovely End to Memorial Day

I hope you all have had a wonderful Memorial Day and took the time to remember the sacrifices of those in our military so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have.

I did a little (okay a lot of) work today clearing off our deck. We had a lot of kid stuff piled high that the girls no longer play with. We moved our table to that end of the deck. I can't believe how spacious it feels now. It was very nice enjoying our hamburgers and hot dogs outside this evening.

We also picked up a super neat item that you can see below.

So cool!
But it sure looks a little empty doesn't it?
Gotta have some people to enjoy it.

There, that's better! 
We invited Oma and Opa from across the street over to help us break in the fire pit.
You gotta have s'mores!

Opa and Steve made the yummiest looking toasted marshmallows.
Jessica's took a little longer because she was hesitant to get it too close to the heat.
But she sure enjoyed the results!

Perfect, just perfect!

Thanks for stopping by.
I hope you have a wonderful start to your week!

What a great way to top off a holiday weekend! I love fire pits and s'mores - a perfect way to spend your summer evenings.

Hope your week is just as good as the start of it was! Enjoy, sweet friend!

I love your Oma and Opa! That's what we called our grandparents :) Your fire pit is awesome looking, a lot prettier than ours :) Great smores, I can feel the pounds piling on just by looking at them!

Oh that looks like so much fun! Glad you're enjoying your fire "pit". Brent and I love going out back and roasting marshmallows or even just sitting by the fire in the evening, relaxing. You're gonna have loads of fun more evenings!!!
