First Bonfire of The Season!

Yesterday was the perfect Friday!

The sun was shining, the weather was finally warm, the babes and I spent the afternoon outside playing and having a picnic, and we even had a bonfire at night!

These are the Fridays that make you love Spring & Summer!
These are the Fridays that make you open all your windows and enjoy the warm air to come!
These are the Fridays that kick off a great start to a great weekend!

Now that both babes are old enough, we were so excited to get out and try our hand at a family bonfire!
Greta & Tuck have recently been talking about having a bonfire and "roating martmellows" and we thought yesterday was the perfect weather and the perfect night to do so!

So, I grabbed a tray and loaded it up with all the bonfire goodies you could think of and hit the backyard!
Hot dogs, chili, cheese, ketchup, mustard, relish, potato salad, and chips!
Now that's my kind of spread!
The babes jumped on the trampoline while we roasted up the wienies for everyone.

 I'll have to admit though... not much of the babes hot dogs were eaten.
They were too excited for what was to come...
 ... roasting marshmallow's!!!
Mmm mmm!
My favorite part of the night!
Daddy helped Tuck and Mommy helped Greta and we set off to roasting!

Tuck had fun roasting and loved his marshmallow... Greta on the other hand caught hers on fire and freaked out! I however LOVE the crispy ones, so I had no problem getting rid of it for her and starting a new one! ;)

 They absolutely loved it and had so much fun making S'mores!
 Camp fire, s'mores, and some outside play time... the babes were in heaven!
 And so were we!
A nice relaxing evening... together!
As our night started to wined down we enjoyed one last time on the swings...
 ... before they were told to head inside for a bath!
 All in all it was a GREAT night!
Lots of fun, lots of family play time, and lots of laughs!
A GREAT start to a GREAT Mother's Day Weekend!

I told you last night was the perfect Friday night! :)

Hope you all are having a great weekend!
And to all you Mom's out there....
Happy Mother's Day if we don't chat tomorrow!

Make sure to relax and do something for yourself that you love... you deserve it!

Chat later,
