Perfect Spring Evening

Finally, we had some spring weather Monday night.  Lately, it's either been chilly or quite warm for this time of year.  Not Monday night, so we took advantage of the weather.  We headed outside around our campfire ring and enjoyed ourselves.  We roasted hot dogs ("got gods" by Randy), s'mores, and just enjoyed each other.  It was so nice to relax and not worry about how clean (or more like how dirty) my house is, or what time it was, or what to watch on tv.  We just enjoyed nature. 

The kids loved it when I spread out the blanket.  They rolled around on it, laid on it, and snuggled on it.  Later that evening I was soooo happy I brought it out b/c it did get quite chilly.  Ruthie and I snuggled on the trampoline singing songs while Daddy and Randy tended to the fire.

The kids weren't too fond of the smores, which I find odd.  They would rather eat the ingredients separate.  Randy also discovered a new sport- marshmallow flinging.  He loved putting them on the stick and flinging them.  Silly boy!

I couldn't resist adding in a few more photos of the kids.
