One last Hurrah!

This past weekend we decided to have one last fire in the backyard and take advantage of the decent weather before it gets cold and wet around here. It was actually Dan's idea. It was pretty crisp out but by the fire it was PERFECT! We roasted some homemade marshmallows that I made the other night with some girlfriends of mine and made smores. The peppermint, and root beer flavored marshmallows were the best! I didn't much care for the banana ones, but the kids didn't mind. It's sugar!

Notice my Garden boxes in the background? There are 4 of them. One of the projects I just finished was the covers for them. I stapled some 2X2's at the bottom of the plastic on each side so now they can't blow away. Then we got some plastic clamps to close up the sides to keep the heat in. Now I can start some winter lettuce and carrots. We'll see how that goes. I still need to stake up the raspberry bushes. They were starts that we got from the in-laws. Hoping to get some berries from them next year.

Anyway, back to the fire post. Emma was content sitting in my lap starring at the fire. She gnawed on a grahmn cracker too. She was very happy and pleasant.It was a very nice evening with our little family. I love that my husband does these spur of the moment things for us all the time! He's the best!
