After a busy busy day, our house was the place to be this evening. For kids, at any rate. Not much before 5:00 they started playing in the sprinkler (or not playing, as it happened; but the sprinkler was involved in their game).
Then we built a fire (and I need to brag: it was all with things we picked up from around the yard and just one match).
I denied the immediate request for marshmallows, but after further reflection I couldn't resist, and they toasted nicely in the coals.
It was all lovely; the only problem is all that summer fun pushes bedtime pretty late. How do you think the boys will do tomorrow after not going down until 9:00? I guess we'll see!
